It is vital that your DOEHRS-IH data is current and accurate.
If you need assistance in upgrading your skills in DOEHRS data collection and entry, a monthly training session is regularly scheduled for the last Thursday of each month, with the exception of November and December.
For these two months, the refresher is held on the 3rd Thursday.
The DOEHRS-IH Refresher Training is announced well in advance to DOEHRS-IH account holders.
In addition, the metric lists the DOEHRS-IH data fields that should be completed to provide data for each metric.
The ISR, CMS, and DOEHRS-IH are all Army mandated systems that support Presidential Directives and Army Regulations.

Army IHs are tasked to anticipate, recognize, evaluate, and control occupational health hazards at medical treatment facilities and installations worldwide.
In order to accomplish these tasks, an IH conducts evaluations or surveys at the workplace operations to determine the employees’ (both military and civilian) potential exposures to chemical, physical, biological, and ergonomics hazards.
The information that is gathered during these evaluations, including worker exposure monitoring results, is entered into the DOEHRS-IH.
This database collection system is used throughout the DoD.
DOEHRS-IH records contain a history of individual worker pre-deployment, deployment, and post-deployment exposures.
The data can then be analyzed and utilized by environmental, safety and occupational health practitioners to prioritize preventive medicine actions.
This includes a baseline to facilitate exposure-based medical surveillance and post-deployment follow-up, allocation of resources, implementation of controls, and development of appropriate training programs.
All these actions enhance combat readiness by focusing efforts to reduce workplace exposures, illnesses, and injuries.
DoD IH Exposure Assessment Model and DOEHRS-IH
The data collection modules in the DOEHRS-IH are based on an IH exposure assessment model developed by the DoD IH Working Group.
DoD IH Exposure Assessment Model Report - January 2000 (CAC required)
This model describes an 8-step exposure assessment strategy for use by field-level IHs to collect and evaluate IH exposure data throughout DoD.
The model applies to IH risk assessments performed on DoD operations ranging from peacetime fixed facilities to military field deployments and afloat, and for exposures ranging from repetitive industrial maintenance operations to one-time exposures to ambient chemical, biological, and physical stresses.
Please review the PowerPoint presentation for a snapshot of the DoD Exposure Assessment Model.
