Occupational Health Services for Biological Hazards

If there is an exposure incident for which you have a Standard Operating Procedure that indicates you should contact Walsh and Associates during normal business hours, contact their main office in Belleville at 613-966-4114.

  • Outside of those defined incident types, or if unable to contact Walsh and Associates, if there is an exposure incident requiring urgent medical attention then workers should go to the Kingston Health Sciences Centre – Kingston General Hospital (KHSC – KGH) Emergency. Location of the Emergency Room Entrance (Google Maps) at Kingston General Hospital.

Routine biohazard related matters:

Queen's employees and students working in or around laboratories with biohazards may use the services of the Walsh and Associates Occupational Health Services clinic for routine matters such as:

  • work-related immunizations and antibody titre testing

  • respiratory assessments related to respirator use for those with certain medical conditions
  • medical counselling and serum testing as necessary for certain biohazard exposure incidents for which a Queen’s SOP has been written e.g. exposure to a non-human primate or to human blood
