Abstract

BENAVIDES, Fernando G.; DELCLOS, Jordi  and  SERRA, Consol. Welfare State and public health: the role of occupational health. Gac Sanit [online]. 2018, vol.32, n.4, pp.377-380. ISSN 0213-9111.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.gaceta.2017.07.007.

In the context of the current crisis of the Welfare State, occupational health can contribute significantly to its sustainability by facilitating decent and healthy employment throughout the working life. To this end, occupational health must take on the challenge of promoting health, preventing and managing injuries, illnesses and disability, based on better coordination of prevention services, mutual insurance companies, and health services, as well as by empowering the leadership in prevention of companies and the active participation of those who work.

Keywords : Social security; Occupational health and safety; Health system; Health policies.
