Genetic information refers to information about genes, gene products, or inherited characteristics that may derive from an individual or family member. In the workplace, genetic information is usually the product of genetic screening or genetic monitoring, but may also be derived from a person's medical record. This chapter examines the use of genetic information in the occupational safety and health field in terms of practice, research, and regulation.
