WOEMA Advisory Statement: Complying with the Medical Aspects of USP 800
[Adopted by the Western Occupational & Environmental Medical Association on 12/4/2019]

Executive Summary
The recommendations of USP 800 are scheduled for implementation in late 2019. Hospitals and other credentialed health care facilities that use antineoplastic and other hazardous drugs (HDs) will be required to adopt a number of industrial hygiene practices, conduct worker training, and carry out limited medical surveillance for certain personal risk factors that may increase a health care worker’s likelihood of suffering adverse health consequences if exposed to HDs.
