Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee - IACUC
Occupational Health and Safety Program
An occupational health and safety program is a required part of the overall animal care and use program.
The focus is maintaining a safe and healthy workplace.
UVM's Department of Risk Management has contracted with an outside firm to provide occupational health monitoring for all UVM personnel who work with animals. This firm, Champlain Medical, is located in South Burlington, 802-448-9370.
All personnel working with animals are required to complete a baseline risk assessment form prior to working with animals.
Subsequent health reviews are required annually utilizing an annual update form. If, however, you have health concerns prior to any review you should contact Champlain Medical immediately.
As the assessments are received at Champlain Medical, each person’s responses are evaluated by an occupational health physician. Those persons who are designated to be at risk for work-related disease will be contacted by Champlain Medical to make an appointment for a physical examination.
The baseline and annual forms can be found on our forms page.
