The online form must be completed by new employees who are exposed to hazards as part of their assigned job duties and/or current employees who have changes to their hazards or personnel information. Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) will use this information to determine the need for enrollment in the ISU Occupational Medicine Program. Individuals and supervisors will receive an email after EH&S has completed the evaluation of the hazards, and can login to see the results. If it is determined that the individual’s workplace hazards require medical monitoring or training, the individual will receive a notice from the ISU Occupational Medicine Program with further instructions. Hepatitis B Vaccination Personnel who work with human blood or other potentially infectious materials (PIMs) must receive Bloodborne Pathogens Exposure Control Training and be offered the choice of receiving Hepatitis B vaccination within ten working days of initial assignment. Personnel may not begin work with human blood or other PIMs until the training and vaccination offer have been completed. Vaccinations will be administered by the Occupational Medicine office and billed to the vaccine recipient’s department. • Affected personnel choosing to receive the vaccination must complete a Consent or Decline of Vaccination Form. The consent form will be returned to the Occupational Medicine office (G11 Technical and Administrative Services Facility (TASF), 2408 Pammel Drive) and filed in the vaccine recipient’s medical history file.
