Site Visits

The dermatological site visit can have a preventative as well as a diagnostic value. Site visits allow the physician to do the following:

1. Make an etiological diagnosis by observing working conditions, personal hygiene, and work exposures

2. Make practical recommendations for job modification to manage skin disease

3. Obtain further information by seeing other employees and reviewing medical records

4. Obtain information on the industrial process

5. Develop better rapport with management and employees

Refer to Chapter 11 for more information on work-site visits (8,9).
