Medical Assessments

The IST carries out medical assessments when requested to do so by employers or the competent authorities. These can be assessments with regards to the legal or health insurance aspects of occupational health, or providing complex recommendations on whether a workstation is correctly adapted to employees' safety needs or whether employees are fit to to their job. Assessments can also involve preventive follow-up for categories of workers (including Swiss occupational health insurance agency "assujetissements"). In all cases, costs are borne by the party requesting the medical assessment.

For all enquiries, please contact the IST's medical secretariat by telephone on +41 21 314 74 33 or by email on secretariat.medecine(at)
