Health monitoring guide for registered medical practitioners - Nickel and nickel compounds
Health monitoring must be supervised by a registered medical practitioner (RMP) who has been engaged by the person conducting the business or undertaking (PCBU).
Medical practitioners undertaking health monitoring are required to have an understanding of the potential adverse health effects of nickel and nickel compounds, and to use their clinical knowledge to advise on health monitoring for workers in the workplace.
The identification of early changes and potential adverse health effects from occupational exposures enables early clinical intervention and modifications in the workplace to prevent serious and irreversible damage to health, that is, occupational disease.
