A fundamental responsibility of the Occupational Health Program at UW–Madison is to reduce the health and safety risks and hazards associated with both direct and indirect animal contact. For individuals with research- or teaching-related exposure to animals and/or animal facilities, risk or health assessments are performed through enrollment in the university’s Occupational Health Program. Information obtained through risk or health screenings will be used to determine clearance for animal exposure. The level of occupational health and safety practices required will be determined by the hazards and risks imposed by the environment, the degree of contact with animal species, and the health status of the individual.
Enrollment in the Occupational Health Program is mandatory for the following participants.
