Hazmat Physicals

Exposure to hazardous chemicals or other materials may cause a variety of health problems: skin and mucous membrane irritation; reproductive problems; bone marrow changes with altered blood cell production; impaired liver and/or kidney function; and changes in the neurological, respiratory, and cardiovascular systems.

Vanderbilt Environmental Health & Safety staff who routinely handle hazardous waste for disposal and assist in clean up of chemical spills must be screened.

Medical Screening includes:

  • Health/work history review
  • Physical exam targeting systems that could be affected by hazardous chemicals
  • Lab work will also be checked
  • Clearance to wear a SCBA respirator (at the first visit and with any significant health changes)

To schedule an appointment for a Hazmat physical, call 936-0955.
