Medical Surveillance

In order to implement and manage the SDSU Medical Surveillance Program, the Environmental Health and Safety Department must be notified when employees are involved in work practice or workplace where health or physical hazard potentially exists. These employees will need to be enrolled in the Medical Surveillance Program which involves scheduling for initial medical exam prior to start of work as well as exit exams prior to the last day of employment.  The Medical Surveillance Program applies to permanent and temporary employees.
