    OHPs emphasize their independence

    Occupational Health Physicians (OHPs) find it annoying they are not seen as independent. Many employees believe these physicians primarily look at the interests of employers and therefore aim to get employees back to work as soon as possible. OHPs are now trying to disprove this believe.


    Employees often see OHPs as serving the employer. In other words, they are not seen as independent. This is a false believe, however, as stated by OHPs on the website of ArboNed (Dutch health and safety service). Employees seem to think OHPs are only trying to get them back to work as quickly as possible and that they share medical data with employers. According to the physicians, this assumption is completely wrong and medical data is never shared with employers; the latter are only informed of whether an employee can work and, if so, for how many hours per week. The OHPs emphasize that employees are no good to an employer if they cannot properly recover. This would only result in employees calling in sick again soon after getting back to work, with increased chances of being out of the running for even longer.
