Occupational medicine

Occupational health and safety at Munich Airport

It is not only the Occupational Health and Safety Act that requires measures to protect employees. Companies are also, quite rightly, placing greater emphasis on preserving employees' health and ability to work. In particular against the backdrop of demographic changes and a growing number of older employees, companies are well advised to act promptly and take appropriate health and safety measures.

To support you, the occupational medicine offers a broad spectrum of medical services. This includes extensive expertise in assessing the working environment from a preventive standpoint and advising companies on proactive approaches to promoting their employees' health and performance.

Depend on occupational medicine in all areas of occupational healthcare.
