This committee focuses on Occupational Health services for University personnel and the emerging issues of health and safety for employees working in the clinic environment. The Clinic work environment is primarily characterized by activities involving patient contact and exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials. The Clinic Environment frequently has additional health and safety requirements imposed by accreditation organizations, e.g., Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, JCAHO.
