Abstract : The objectives of the Army Occupational Health Program at Fort Gordon are: Insure all eligible personnel are physically, mentally and psychologically suited to their work at the time of assignment, and that physical and mental health are maintained during service or employment; Protect employees against adverse effects of health and safety hazards in the work environment; Insure appropriate medical care and rehabilitation of the occupationally ill and injured; and Reduce economic losses caused by physical deficiency, sickness and injury of military and civilian employees. The responsibilities for the successful implementation of this program rest with the Fort Gordon Commander to insure that all units and activities comply with with all aspects of the program and the Director of Health Services to insure that the medical aspects of the program are accomplished in a timely manner. The Chief, Preventive Medicine Activity acts as the executive agent of the Director of Health Services and has the specific responsibility of the effective implementation and functioning of the medical aspects of the occupational health program.
