a. This NASA Procedural Requirement (NPR) describes occupational health program procedures necessary to effectively carry out the mission of the Office of the Chief Health and Medical Officer as specified in Section 4.16.1 of NPD 1000.3C, The NASA Organization and to ensure that the scope and quality of services provided by Occupational Health Program (OHP) personnel at NASA Centers are optimal. Both OHP professionals and allied professionals throughout the Agency shall utilize these procedures, as appropriate, in their daily tasks to assure the health of employees and a safe work environment.
b. Where conflicts exist between other NASA health and safety requirements, Occupational Safety and Health Administration requirements and other Federal, state, or local regulations, the most protective requirements shall apply.
c. OHP services shall encompass six constituent areas, all working synergistically to support employee health, yet functioning under different legal statutes and requiring unique professional expertise and different process procedures and outcome metrics. These six constituent programs include Occupational Medicine, Environmental Health, Radiological Health, Health Promotion and Wellness, Workers' Compensation, and Employee Assistance.
d. Recordkeeping is one area that overlaps all six of the OHP constituent areas. While each area has recordkeeping requirements specific to it, there are a few requirements that apply across the board.
