Records available under OSHA rule

Under a regulation from the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration, employers are required to make available upon request certain medical records and all exposure records of employees who are exposed to toxic substances or hazardous agents.

In compliance with this regulation, the University will provide a first copy of these records free to the employee or a representative to whom the employee has given specific written authorization. The regulation does not require that access be provided to the records of counseling, drug or alcohol abuse programs.

A written request must be submitted by the employee or authorized representative, along with proof of identity, such as a driver's license or University identification card. To ensure that the proper information is made available, the employee must provide his or her social security number.

Medical record request forms may be obtained from Occupational Medicine, Health Services, McCosh Health Center (258-5035). Exposure record request forms are available from Environmental Health and Safety (258-5294). Requests from former employees must be submitted to the Office of Human Resources in Clio Hall.

A copy of this regulation is available for review upon request at McCosh Health Center or Environmental Health and Safety.
