Occupational Medicine - Work Injuries

Occupational Medicine, was previously known as “Industrial Medicine” and today is known as “Occupational Health”. Occupational Health is a branch of medicine concerned with the maintenance of health in the workplace, including prevention and treatment of diseases and injuries, with secondary objectives of maintaining and increasing productivity and social adjustment in the workplace.
