detection and diagnosis of most of the occupational diseases and
adequate evaluation of functional and pathological changes of organ
systems is challenging task that cannot be achieved through ordinary
clinical process. They need a specialized approach that includes
detailed analysis of biological materials such as, blood urine for
chemicals, perfect evaluation of organ functioning and even audiometry
measurements for nerve conduction velocity etc. The detection of
occupational diseases also requires extra special medical equipment,
mostly computerized analytical system, for precise results.
was in this background and keeping in view the increasing number of
insured population getting exposed to occupation risks that the
Employees’ State Insurance Corporation had decided to establish five
Zonal Occupational Diseases Centres at New Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkatta, Indore
& Chennai as referral institutions for early detection and
prevention of occupational diseases.
