Answers to employers’ questions

There are several reasons why your employees may need to undergo a health checkup. Firstly, health examinations must be carried out by law at least every three years, but the occupational health doctor may also oblige the health examination to take place sooner if necessary. Secondly, the need may arise from the company’s risk analysis or occupational health service plan.
The purpose of health surveillance is to prevent occupational injuries and to help adapt working conditions to the worker’s ability to work. Also, advise the employer on making work processes smoother and the work environment healthier for employees. High-quality occupational health control helps to prevent workers from becoming ill and shortens the time spent on sick leave. If the occupational health doctor diagnoses an illness related to work, the employee is referred to a family doctor. Occupational health is not meant to duplicate the work of a family doctor.
During the health examination, the occupational health specialist assesses the health of employees from several different aspects based on their profession and the risk factors to which the employee is exposed to in the course of their work.
All staff shall be subjected to a thorough examination of their eyes, musculoskeletal system and general health, the results of which shall be assessed in the light of the specific features of their work.
