    The Department of Occupational Medicine and Environmental Health provides consultation in the areas of occupational health and environment-related health problems. We evaluate and manage anticipated health problems, and identify occupational, lifestyle hazards and environment-related disorders. We emphasize individual health maintenance in our approach to the promotion of good health and assist companies in identification of workplace health hazards, cost-effective preventive health programs and fringe benefit packages for employees. Our clinical faculty provides services at Kentucky Clinic South and is available for employer sponsored job-site evaluations for industrial and agricultural work environments.
