Occupational health services and consultations are based on medical management requirements of work activities.
EHC provides services to employees needing regulatory management, such as those employees whose work involves:
- Animal research, care and use
- Airborne hazards that require a respirator
- Research scientific diving
- UW Police Department
- Work with Select Agents/BSL-3 biohazards
Visit the Research Occupational Health webpage for more information.
Preventive health services
Preventive health services include blood pressure screenings and Occupational Health screenings.
Blood pressure screening
Blood pressure screening is available to all UW employees; no permission is required.
Occupational Health screenings
(department/unit permission required)
Occupational Health screenings are part of a comprehensive exam package customized for the individual. Occupational Health screenings require permission from your unit or department.
Injured employees may call us at 206.685.1026, press "0" immediately following an incident.
If it’s an emergency, the employee should call 9-1-1.
The Employee Health Center will complete a brief intake or risk assessment of the injury, and refer the employee to another healthcare facility for more complete medical attention, if appropriate.
If an injury occurs outside our business hours (8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday to Friday), the employee should seek care at a healthcare facility in the community, such as the UW Medical Center.

Most services are billed to the employee’s department (except for blood pressure screenings). You need permission from your supervisor to access most UW Employee Health Center services.
To ensure our clients are safe at work: this is done by reviewing the staff member’s work group and role, along with items that may put them at risk for injury/exposure, such as different pathogens or chemicals or work-related activities that may increase their risk for disease/illness injury. Immunizations, medical surveillance, medical management for work activities, along with education are a few ways the UW Employee Health Center protects the health of staff and students.
Non-work-related acquired illness/disease/injuries should be evaluated by the client’s personal healthcare provider.
The UW Employee Health Center works closely with other EH&S teams to accomplish our mission of keeping you safe at work.
The Research Occupational Health webpage contains important safety information for those working in research at the UW: it is highly recommended researchers visit this webpage and become familiar with its contents.
