Prevention of Occupational Risks - Guideline 26. Medical and vocational rehabilitation in occupational disease cases
The institution defines a clear policy for handling cases of occupational disease. It ensures that a process is set up to assess the degree of disability caused by the occupational disease.
In general, the same rehabilitation principles and measures are valid for occupational disease cases and occupational accidents as described in the ISSA Guidelines on Return to Work and Rehabilitation (e.g. Guideline 8, Combining medical treatment and vocational rehabilitation).
