Description:
The company will require its doctor to be mature, confident, tactful and discreet. He must be able to make positive decisions and give quick advice on a variety of subjects. He must be seen as a respected friend and confidant to whom anyone can tum for advice or help. He must be seen by all to be an independent arbiter within the company. He is a doctor, who in relation to any work place, takes full medical responsibility for advising those working therein, on all matters connected directly or indirectly with the work. Just as a general physician would not take responsibility for the health of a patient without examining him, so the occupational physician cannot properly undertake his responsibilities without regular examination of the a) workplace. b) His duties fall broadly under two headings: The effects of health on the capacity to work. The effects of work on a persons health.
