Occupational health and safety risk: role of the occupational health physician and of the public occupational health and safety services in the workplace



Giornale Italiano di Medicina del Lavoro Ed Ergonomia 33(3 Suppl): 217-220



DLgs 626/94 adopted European Directives and changed the Italian field of safety and health at work, involving the Occupational Health Physician in the risk assessment. The actual DLgs 81/08 remarked this role underlying many legal responsibilities. The aim of this paper is to analyse and discuss both the generic and the specific involvement of the Occupational Health Physician in risk assessment and management in the workplace and the role of the Public Occupational Health and Safety Services in the control of the professional duties of Occupational Health Physician dealing with risk assessment and health surveillance.
