Abstract
This testimony by NIOSH supports the concept of generic standards for exposure monitoring and medical surveillance. NIOSH recognizes the importance of having standards that assure the development of occupational health and safety programs for preventing health risks that may result from unsafe work conditions, including the evaluation of exposure to chemical, biological and physical agents. NIOSH supports the use of medical testing of workers exposed to potential hazards as part of an overall program to protect worker health. NIOSH suggests that OSHA should consider the two generic standards as dependent concepts that should evolve as a continuum and should integrate, as much as possible, the elements of environmental monitoring, biological monitoring, and medical screening.
