Exposure Program (AEP) provides relevant health and
safety information related to use and care of animals, occupationally
indicated immunizations, and clinical evaluation and treatment for animal
related injuries or illnesses.
NIH employees are required to participate in this program if they are
involved in the direct care of animals or their living quarters or have
direct contact with animals (live or dead), their viable tissues, body fluids
or waste. Trainees, Fellows, or Special Volunteers who conduct animal
activities are eligible for enrollment in the AEP and other associated
Occupational Medical Service programs to the extent necessary to support
their involvement in the Animal Care and Use program. Contract employees
are eligible only for emergency medical care (i.e. evaluation and treatment
of occupational injuries.)
