Reports of work-related diseases, injuries, and poisonings trigger public health
follow-up by the Occupational Health Surveillance Unit. This includes
an interview with the reported individual and worksite contact to ensure
that co-workers are not also at risk.
Reporting is vital to preventing further disease and is required by the
New Jersey regulations listed below. Reportable work-related conditions
include: silicosis, work-related asthma, asbestosis, poisonings due to
heavy metals and pesticides, work-related injuries in children under
the age of 18, work-related fatalities, and occupational dermatitis.
A complete list of reportable conditions can be found in the regulations
and on the reporting forms.
