Occupational medicine

Introduction

AEH corporate health experts support employees and employers from a single source. We support companies for all medical concerns, for example with regular visits of workstations, suitability evaluations and screenings of employees or personal advice on health problems that have an effect on work or are linked to it.

Goals of occupational medicine - as a part of Corporate Health Management:

  • Protection of employees against work-related hazards
  • Medical suitability evaluation for risk areas (driving ability, heat, shifts, ...)
  • Determination of the ability to work/to be reintegrated after an illness or accident
  • Avoidance of occupational diseases or work-related health problems
  • Promotion of physical and mental health and performance
  • Maintaining ability to work and employability

The AEH team’s field of activity in occupational medicine:

As experts on occupational diseases and work-related health problems and on their prevention, they mediate between the medical profession, companies and corporate partners.
