What is Health Surveillance?
As explained on the Australian Government’s Department of Justice and Attorney General’s website:
“Health surveillance is the monitoring (including biological monitoring) of the health of workers to identify any changes caused by exposure to a hazardous substance”
Requirements for health surveillance vary between jurisdictions (Australian states and territories) and also across industries. Some industries specify strict guidelines for when, what, how and who can assess the health of your workers.
