10A NCAC 41C .0701-.0703 - Occupational Health Surveillance

The proposed rules update surveillance reporting requirements for occupational diseases, illnesses, and injuries to be more protective of public health. In particular, the proposed rules expand reporting of adult blood lead levels to NC DHHS, Division of Public Health because current science indicates that adverse health effects may occur with blood lead levels less than 5 µg/dL. In addition, 10A NCAC 41C .0701 and .0703 are being readopted pursuant to G.S. 150B-21.3A, Periodic Review and Expiration of Existing Rules.

A public hearing will be held on September 23, 2019 at 10 a.m. in the Cardinal Room, Building 3, located at 5605 Six Forks Road, Raleigh, NC 27609.
