Medical records.

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.
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.
To see additional employee medical record requirements, including access and transfer requirements, go to another chapter, Employee medical and exposure records, chapter 296-802 WAC.
