Surveillance programs

The Epidemiological Surveillance Programs (PVE) help to collect systematically and permanently information about the health of workers, which allows to identify, quantify, monitor, intervene and follow up on the risk factors to which the employees of the CES University are exposed and that can cause occupational disease.
Currently 4 Epidemiological Surveillance Programs have been implemented:

The employees of CES University, due to their functions, are a population susceptible to occupational exposure with biological agents. One of the main risks is the transmission of pathogens that are spread by blood and body fluids. As these pathologies are of high impact, it is important to establish prevention, intervention and control measures focused on all employees, students, residents and interested parties exposed to this risk factor.

Implement a surveillance program that allows the early diagnosis of health conditions and musculoskeletal work, as well as define preventive activities and comprehensive control of risk factors associated with postures, load handling, repetitive movements, among others; in the positions and work areas, in order to avoid their possible effects on people's health or, failing that, reduce or mitigate them, for the workers of the CES University.

This program establishes the minimum requirements and conditions that all persons related to medical practice, care, students and patients must meet during the provision of health services that cause exposure to ionizing radiation, intervenes in order to reduce exposures and defines the basic conditions for the protection of people.

CES University has decided to establish as part of its Occupational Health and Safety Management System, the Epidemiological Surveillance Program for the prevention of voice pathologies, aimed at employees whose main work involves the use of their voice. (Teachers, Administrative assistants, Contact Center staff).

In order to know the behavior of the different events related to the health - disease process, enabling the design and implementation of actions that intervene in the causal process and adequate professional monitoring in people exposed to the risk factor.
