Occupational Health at Texas A&M

The Occupational Health Program at Texas A&M University integrates exposure assessment, risk mitigation, and medical surveillance services to improve the occupational health and safety of the Texas A&M community and to comply with federal and state regulations.

Occupational health services at Texas A&M are provided by two entities on campus:

  • Occupational health for biological hazards, which includes microorganisms, biological toxins, and allergens from humans or animals, is provided through the Biosafety Occupational Health Program (BOHP) and administered through the Office of Research Compliance and Biosafety.

Health care services are provided by a health care provider under contract to Texas A&M.

Not sure who to contact regarding your occupational health? If you know the hazard type, look in the list below for the contact information. If you are not sure, you may call 979.862.4549 or 979.845.2132, and we will direct you as needed.

Please note recent change: All researchers associated with the Texas A&M Health Science Center will now receive occupational health services by contacting the new OHP at OHP@tamhsc.edu.
