For each medical evaluation required by this section, the employer shall ensure that the physician or other licensed health care professional produces a written opinion and provides a copy to the employer and the employee within 15 business days of the evaluation. The written opinion shall be limited to the following information:
1910.1051(k)(7)(i)(A)
The occupationally pertinent results of the medical evaluation;
1910.1051(k)(7)(i)(B)
A medical opinion concerning whether the employee has any detected medical conditions which would place the employee's health at increased risk of material impairment from exposure to BD;
1910.1051(k)(7)(i)(C)
Any recommended limitations upon the employee's exposure to BD; and
1910.1051(k)(7)(i)(D)
A statement that the employee has been informed of the results of the medical evaluation and any medical conditions resulting from BD exposure that require further explanation or treatment.
1910.1051(k)(7)(ii)
The written medical opinion provided to the employer shall not reveal specific records, findings, and diagnoses that have no bearing on the employee's ability to work with BD.

Note: However, this provision does not negate the ethical obligation of the physician or other licensed health care professional to transmit any other adverse findings directly to the employee.
