3.Investigations of work exposure and occupational disease
OSHA has set up Occupational Disease and Injury Prevention Service Centers (ODIPSCs) in northern, central, southern, and eastern Taiwan, covering the entire country. Combined with the occupational medicine departments at hospitals across the country, these constitute an occupational injury and disease prevention network and reporting system. (See Figure 1 for the network.) The ODIPSCs and network hospitals are part of a reporting system, and assist in conducting identification and investigations of occupational diseases.
