ABSTRACT:
Workers’ medical prophylactic examinations referred to in the Labor Code are one of the tasks of the occupational medicine services. They are regulated by law which has been in force for more than 20 years in unchanged form. During this period, new harmful, burdensome or dangerous to health factors appeared in the workplaces, for which no preventive health check-up standard was defined. In the meantime, the health criteria for drivers and persons applying for driving licenses have also been significantly liberalized. The above changes, the authors' own experience, comments and problems reported by physicians who provide workers’ prophylactic health care and employers as well as analysis of literature related to workers’ health care in other countries have created the need to harmonize and update guidelines on health requirements for selected types of work. In addition the scope and frequency of prophylactic examinations for exposures, which are not included in applicable legal acts, has been developed. Med Pr 2019;70(1)
