Key words: modified duty, hazards, return to work, injury prevention

A better understanding of the health hazards of the workplace can be gained by work site visits. Physicians can use their observational skills to increase their understanding of work processes, hazardous exposures, potential adverse health effects, preventive principles, and control measures during inspection of work sites. This chapter focuses on previsit preparations, the site visit, and postvisit responses (1,2).
