Abstract

The objective of the study was to assess occupational health
services in small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Bacãu, between 2007 and 2008, in order
to increase the quality of services management. Material and method: Five hundred seventy
nine SMEs with 21,815 employees have been studied, with a number of employees varying
from ten to 250 per enterprise. About 4478 employees, out of which 587 with different
occupational exposures, have no occupational health services provided on a contract basis.
Results: The high number of occupational diseases and work related accidents in SMEs show
a low level of concern for occupational health and safety matters, compared to big enterprises.
The employees opinions showed that the role of occupational health is not known, there is no
concern for the medical adaptation of new employees or old employees rehired after a long
break, the employees do not consult occupational health services on their own accord. The
occupational services do not fully satisfy the need. The study offers useful data to physicians
and SMEs management in order to improve the occupational health management.
