Abstract
This document has been superseded and the new version can be found <a href="https://www.cdc.gov/niosh/docs/wp-solutions/2013-103/"target="_blank">here</a>. Health care workers who handle, prepare, or administer hazardous drugs may face risks to their own health such as skin rashes, cancer, and reproductive disorders. NIOSH recommends that employers establish a medical surveillance program to protect workers who handle hazardous drugs in the workplace.
