Health monitoring is the observance and checking of a person's health in order to identify where changes are identified in the person's health status due to exposure to hazardous substances.
Legislation places a duty on a PCBU ('person conducting a business or undertaking') to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health of workers is monitored to prevent illness or injury.
