Occupational Health Program

The OUHSC/OU-Tulsa Occupational Health Program was implemented for all personnel who work with or in proximity to animals used in teaching, testing, or research at OUHSC. The program is regularly reviewed by the IACUC in accordance with federal and institutional policy. These procedures and guidelines are in place to promote the health and safety of all personnel involved in animal care and handling. This document is available here:


The Environmental Health and Safety Office (EHSO) has evaluated and addressed those hazards that are inherent to working with animals, such as zoonotic diseases, animal bites and scratches, animal allergies and asthma, chemical cleaning agents, and ergonomic issues, and has provided guidance and training to all animal handling personnel through the OUHSC/OU-Tulsa Laboratory Safety Manual and annual safety training.


The OUHSC Animal Handler’s Health Questionnaire provides a screening tool to provide information to the University Employee Health Service to evaluate the potential risk of individuals and to tailor the medical evaluations needed for a particular individual.
