Following any injury or exposure, faculty, staff and students should report immediately to their supervisor:
Work with certain materials and agents at Biosafety Level 2 (BSL-2) have a wide range of risk, some of higher hazard than others. Personal health status may impact an individual's susceptibility to infection, ability to receive immunizations or prophylactic interventions. Therefore, all laboratory personnel and particularly women of child-bearing age should be provided with information regarding immune competence and conditions that may predispose them to infection. Individuals having these conditions should be encouraged to self-identify to the occupational healthcare provider, UVA WorkMed (434-243-0075), for appropriate counseling and guidance.
For example: Medical services are provided through UVA WorkMed (434-243-0075) for those personnel who are at risk of occupational exposure to bloodborne pathogens, vaccinia and other orthopoxviruses, and other agents, as needed.
If the nature of your research requires medical surveillance through UVA WorkMed, you must bring with to your UVA WorkMed appointment a completed Research Related Medical Health Assessment form.
BSL-3 Medical Clearance is part of UVA's Research Related Medical Health Assessment and personnel must enroll prior to working at BSL-3. All personnel (including research and support personnel) must be evaluated at least annually by UVA WorkMed. The program assesses the risk and health status of all personnel working in the BSL-3 Facility and/or with Risk Group 3 agents and includes:
