Application for employers to be granted an exemption to commission physicians to perform occupational health screening (Section 7 (2) of the Ordinance on Occupational Health Screening (ArbMedVV))

Service Description

According to Section 7, Paragraph 1 of the ArbMedVV, preventive occupational medicine for employees may generally only be performed by a physician who holds the regional title of "Occupational Medicine" or the additional title of "Occupational Medicine".

For this reason, employers must commission doctors with this specialist qualification to carry out preventive occupational medicine in accordance with Section 3 Paragraph 2 ArbMedVV for individual occasions, without prejudice to other provisions in the Annex.

If it is not possible to commission such physicians, the Regional Inspectorate for Eastern Thuringia of the TLV's Occupational Health and Safety Department, which is responsible for the subject matter, may, at the employer's request and in justified individual cases, authorize other physicians with the appropriate expertise to carry out preventive occupational medicine.
