We operate Occupational Health Units (OHU's) at major Naval installations throughout the San Diego area. Each OHU provides clinical services to the military and civilian employees on that base in support of the Navy's Occupational Safety and Health Program.
Medical Surveillance ExaminationsMedical surveillance programs are designed to protect workers who are exposed or potentially exposed to hazardous substances in the workplace. Placement of personnel in medical surveillance programs is based primarily on the results of the Industrial Hygiene Survey completed by the Industrial Hygiene Department. These hazards may include: asbestos, lead, isocyanates, cadmium, solvents, noise, ionizing radiation, pesticides, blood borne pathogens, etc. Examinations are conducted on a periodic basis (click here for document), usually annually.Job Certification ExaminationsJob certification examinations are for jobs that have specific medical standards, licensing requirements or are mandated by instruction. These include: firefighter, respirator certification, forklift operator, childcare worker, motor vehicle operator, explosives handler and driver, crane operator, etc. The examination frequency (click here for document) is variable, based on the certification.Work-related injury and illness care for civilian employeesCivil Service and Non-appropriated Fund employees are eligible for care and follow-up in Occupational Health for their work-related (occupational) injuries and illnesses. They also have the right to choose their private medical provider for care. (click here for document).
Audiograms (hearing tests) are provided to Active Duty and Federal Employees who work in established Hazardous Noise Areas and are in the Hearing Conservation Program. This service is also provided when required as a component of a physical examination to establish personnel as physically qualified to perform their duties (i.e. forklift or crane operator, fire fighter, explosives vehicle operator). Occupational Audiology does not provide care or treatment for traumatic injuries or conditions arising from other than hazardous noise. All others should be referred to Otolaryngology, Audiology Division. Audiograms can be obtained at all Branch Health Centers, the Mobile Occupational Hearing Conservation Audiometric Truck (MOHCAT) at Naval Station between piers 6 and 7 and services are provided on a walk-in basis. Outpatient medical records are required for any visit.
