OHS information and training
Health services seek to promote working conditions which guarantee workplace well being, protect workers' health, promote their physical, mental and social welfare and prevent occupational diseases and work accidents.
In addition to providing first aid to employees in case of an accident at work, it is also an employers’ legal obligation to carry out medical fitness assessment and health surveillance.
The main benefit of occupational medicine is the prevention of work-related diseases and hazards as well as safeguarding the right to stay healthy at work. Occupational physicians assess employees’ medical fitness according to the type of hazards and to the workers’ current health status and issue a document in which they give recommendations on how to adapt working conditions to the employee, thus fighting the growth of occupational diseases and absence levels.
