Abstract
The role of occupational health services that are furnished by clinics to small businesses is discussed. The functions performed include physical examinations, job related accident and illness treatment, disablility evaluations and claim reviews, hygiene, safety, and environmental evaluations, management consultations on federal regulation matters, and health education. The diversity of services and the need to deal with various kinds of individuals are stressed. The economic need and advantage of these services to the small business are described, and the assistance offered to handicapped persons for job placement is reviewed. The expertise provided in the area of disability evaluation is also discussed, and the current trend toward physical fitness programs and preventive medicine is described. The author expects the field of occupational health service to grow in the coming years, and he encourages its acceptance as an integral part of the business setting.
