The goal of occupational healthcare is to sustain and promote the health and working ability of employees by proposing appropriate prevention and control measures for the elimination of hazardous exposures.
Employers can purchase occupational health services for their employees from a municipal health center or other organization offering occupational health services such as a private medical center. Employers can also operate an occupational health unit by themselves or in cooperation with other employers.
Before the launch of occupational health activity at a particular workplace, occupational health professionals will first acquire general information about the industry in which the company operates. They will then look more closely at the workplace itself by making fact-finding visits and learning what physical and psychological risk factors exist in the workplace. Employees’ health status and working ability are evaluated and monitored in medical examinations performed before employment and periodically thereafter as appropriate. The examinations will focus on different criteria depending on job demands, workplace circumstances and individual employees’ health characteristics. The Occupational Health Act establishes four categories which are A, B, C, D. Employers are required to report the appropriate category by filling the request form provided by the occupational healthcare provider. Adequate control measures and guidelines for preventive actions are of paramount importance to prevent unnecessary exposure during normal operating conditions.
