Abstract
The occupational health needs and problems of small industries were assessed, using a section of Brooklyn, New York as a study area. The feasibility of a hospital serving as the focal point in an occupational health program for small industries was investigated. The Occupational Health Program (OHP) of the Brookdale Medical Center offered treatment and followup care of injuries, preemployment physicals, periodic physical examinations, and immunizations. This facility serviced approximately 1,600 small industries employing about 35,000 persons. Baseline interviews were conducted with 194 interested companies in the target area. These companies employed 36% of the expected employees in the target area. A core area manufacturer was more likely to use the OHP only for required injury services and showed reluctance to use other OHP services. Nonutilization occurred because the companies had other places to treat less severe injuries. Use of the OHP as the employee health service for the hospital had the advantage of economy.
