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 three entities on campus:

  • Occupational health for Texas A&M faculty, staff and students with potential exposure to biological hazards, which includes pathogens, biological toxins, and allergens from humans or animals, is provided through the Biosafety Occupational Health Program (BOHP).

  • Occupational health for Texas A&M faculty and staff with potential exposures to radiation, chemicals, and physical hazards, including noise, are provided by the Environmental Health and Safety Department (EHS).

  • Occupational health services for Texas A&M Health Science Center faculty, staff and students with potential exposures to any kind of workplace hazard are provided by Texas A&M Health Science Center's Occupational Health Program (OHP-HSC) 

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