    With a large proportion of emergency admissions due to occupational health problems, the effect this can have on your practice cannot be ignored. Owing to the shortage of occupational physicians and limited worker access to health care, the diagnosis and treatment of occupational diseases rely increasingly on the emergency physician. Apart from extra paperwork, owing to the extra legal and administrative regulations, a lack of knowledge of occupational medicine can risk a missed diagnosis.

    This burden of work means occupational disorders impact the whole of the emergency department from triage to discharge, and beyond, for all work-place injuries or disorders, whether office-based, agricultural or industrial and their employment regulations.
