UCSF OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH PROGRAM (OHP)

HEALTH SURVEILLANCE

 

Animal Exposure Surveillance Program

All new and current UCSF employees/research personnel who have contact with animals in the course of their work are required to participate in baseline health screening procedures by enrolling in the Occupational Health Services' Animal Exposure Surveillance Program (AESP). Failure to comply may result in a restriction from working with animals.The Medical Health Surveillance Questionnaire is available on-line. (Note: Due to security and sensitive information, this form can only be accessed from a UCSF computer or through a VPN.)


Q-Fever Surveillance

(For UCSF faculty and staff who work with sheep)
Q Fever Surveillance involves baseline and annual screening of employees working with sheep as well as post-exposure assessment as necessary.

The process involves assessing risks for the population, conducting sign and symptom review, drawing titers on employees with past negative or equivocal titers, assessing titer results, recommending medical follow-up if necessary, tracking the data over time to provide historical baseline on serology, and reporting any trends in conversions.
