Indoor air problems are common in Finnish workplaces. Air can feel stuffy or heavy, sometimes there are distinct unpleasant odors, draught, or dryness of the air.
Dry indoor air is a common problem, because heated indoors have low relative humidity during winters, and this causes irritation in the mucous membranes of respiratory tracts and sometimes eye problems. Stuffy air is often caused by insufficient ventilation compared to the purpose of use of the area, which results in excessively high concentrations of carbon dioxide.
Good health supports an entrepreneur in doing business and being successful. Occupational health care supports and helps the entrepreneur in maintaining and promoting health, work capacity and well-being at work. Occupational health care also treats illnesses and guides to rehabilitation at need.
The contents of occupational health care are defined based on the work and needs of the entrepreneur. Occupational health care includes physical examinations, an assessment of working conditions, guidance related to working conditions and health, and, at need, treatment of illnesses.
In addition to preventive occupational health care, the employer can buy medical or other health care services for their employees. We offer two options for arranging medical services:
Medical services at general practitioner level (GP-level):
- Includes the examinations that are needed at GP-level medical health care
Medical services at GP-level including specialist consultations:
An accident is an acute, unforeseen event caused by an external factor that causes an injury or illness. Acute means that the event happened suddenly and quickly, and unforeseen means that the event happened unintentionally, that is, that the event was unexpected and surprising. An external factor means a circumstance which the employee could not control and which causes damage, such as slipperiness of a street, a hole in the road, a falling object, or a sharp item.
Activities of occupational health care are based on the individual needs of each workplace. The basis for planning the activities is to identify and take into account the needs of the workplace in co-operation with the occupational health care and the representatives of the workplace.
Under the Occupational Health Care Act (1383/2001), employers are required to arrange occupational health care at their own expense in order to prevent and control health risks and problems related to work and working conditions and to protect and promote the safety, work capacity and health of their employees. The employer is required to arrange occupational health care if they have one or more employees.
We welcome you as a customer of Turku Centre for Occupational Health!
Employers are required to provide preventive occupational health care, i.e. statutory occupational health care, for their employees. Employers may also arrange for medical services and other health care services if they so wish. The aim of medical services is to maintain work ability and to prevent work disability.
