Occupational medicine is essentially the relationship between health and work. More specifically, it is the medical specialty concerned with disease or dysfunction arising from work-related injuries and /or exposure to noxious agents or stimuli. It encompasses medical services that employers and their employees may need, and concerns both the effects of work on a person’s health and the effects of a person’s health on their capacity for work.
