All UCLA staff and/or students who handle animals or animal tissue, or who have access to the vivarium must complete a Medical Health Surveillance Questionnaire (MHQ) annually. The Occupational Health Facility reviews all MHQs and updates OARO Research Application Tracking System (RATS) via on-line database when approved. Division of Laboratory Animal Medicine (DLAM) Employees are also required to complete the questionnaire.

The Occupational Health Facility provides baseline health screenings and annual surveillance for DLAM personnel who have contact with animals in the course of their work.
