Hazardous Materials - Physicals

OSHA - requires employers to medically screen employees that will be exposed to hazardous materials and chemicals that can cause serious bodily harm and health problems.  Hazmat Physicals and medical screening should be completed before exposure work begins, annually as the work continues, at the end of exposure work for the company, and more frequently when monitoring certain health conditions.  This continued attention to employee health is designed to detect employees who should not be performing hazmat jobs, and to detect changes in employee health perhaps related to dangerous exposure to hazardous materials.

There are two different Physicals
