Medical records.

IMPORTANT:
This section applies when a medical evaluation is performed, or any time a medical record is created for an employee exposed to benzene.
(1) You must establish and maintain complete and accurate medical records for each employee receiving a medical evaluation and make sure the records include all the following:
(a) The employee's name and Social Security number, or other unique identifier;
(b) A copy of the licensed health care professional's (LHCP's) written opinions including written decisions and recommendations for the employee removed from exposure;
(c) A copy of the information required in Step 4 of the medical evaluation process, found in WAC 296-849-12030, except for the copy of this chapter and the appendices listed.
(2) You must maintain medical evaluation records for the duration of employment plus thirty years.
Note:
Your medical provider may keep these records for you. Other medical records such as an employee's medical history, need to be kept as a confidential record by the medical provider and accessed only with the employee's consent.
