Occupational health care

Statutory occupational health care


The statutory aspects of occupational health care include sufficiently detailed reports on the healthiness of workplace working conditions, information dissemination on health dangers and guidelines on how to avoid them, initial health inspections and continuing regular health inspections of high-risk professions, and monitoring of workers with reduced functional capacity, including instructions for any required treatment or rehabilitation. Occupational health care also provides, where needed, guidance on maintaining first aid capabilities.

Included in the occupational health sphere are all those companies (and their employees) which have signed occupational health care contracts with the City of Salo.

A diverse range of activities for maintaining working capacity, as well as group rehabilitation activities, are organised for workplaces through joint planning. Activities to support working capacity involve specialist help provided by workplace physiotherapists, psychologists and therapeutic dietitians.

The occupational health centre works in cooperation with the local Kela office when organising early rehabilitation.
