Occupational Medicine

OCCUPATIONAL MEDICINE

This is a particular field of medicine where it is relevant and important to consider, from a biologic, physiologic and psychologic aspect, how well an individual will interface with his or her work environment.

The bottom line is, can the person safely do their job without harm to themselves (or others), or is it possible that the particular job might, in some way, harm them over a period of time?

There are various ways of reasonably making such assessments, notably pre-employment medical examinations and periodic employment health assessments.

Work place visitations and task assessments can be invaluable in some circumstances.

Life Insurance medical examinations can be considered to be a specific sub-category of occupational medicine.
