What does an occupational and environmental medicine physician do?
As highly trained specialists, OEM physicians help improve the health of workers through preventive medicine, clinical care, disability management, research, and education.
We have developed expertise in determining the ability of employees to perform work; the arrangements of work, the physical, chemical, biological, and social environments of the workplace, and the health outcomes of environmental exposures. We are trained to recognize that work and the environment in which it is performed can have favorable or adverse effects upon the health of workers as well as upon the communities in which they live; that the nature or circumstances of work can be arranged to protect worker health; and that health and well-being at the workplace are promoted when workers' physical attributes or limitations are accommodated in job placement. They are skilled at using the tools of preventive medicine (primary, secondary and tertiary) to improve the health of a defined population of workers and their families, and they are trained in the complex Return-to-Work process, an advanced system of health monitoring that optimizes the time in which ill or injured workers can safely return to work.
