What Is Occupational Health?

Occupational health is the branch of medicine that deals with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of work-related diseases and injuries. Work-related diseases are those that are caused or aggravated by exposure to hazards at work. They include conditions such as skin diseases, respiratory disorders, noise-induced hearing loss, stress and musculoskeletal disorders.

Work-related injuries are those that occur as a result of an accident or exposure to a hazardous substance. They include things like slips, trips and falls, cuts and burns, and exposure to harmful chemicals.

Occupational health services can help to prevent work-related diseases and injuries from occurring in the first place, and can provide treatment and support for workers who are affected by them.
