Occupational Medicine is a concept of providing medical assistance and other healthcare services to the workers or employees focused on prevention, assessment, treatment and resolution of health conditions caused by the workplace environment. Occupational medicine protects workers from diseases and injuries as the employers regularly provide services such as health check-up, diagnosis and monitoring etc. as per the regulatory policies. It reduces the burden of healthcare expenditure and increase productivity as the workers are provided proper training and assistance for both prevention and treatment of any disease or injury. The occupational medicine specialists are trained to evaluate the origin of injury and illness so that treatment could be earlier and better. These specialists also provide training and assistance through education programmes on workplace hazards and confirming workplace compliance with regulatory rules and safety norms.

However, instead of rising number employers providing these services, health insurance providers and expanded coverage of health services in the past decade the adoption rate is still sub-optimal for a number of different reasons, which is impeding the market growth. Some of employers do not follow the regulatory norms strictly and hence, they do not provide quality occupational medicine services to their employees, which impacts the market growth negatively.
