The Mount Sinai Selikoff Centers for Occupational Health are committed to the health of workers and workplaces through the prevention and reduction of occupational health risks by promoting physical and mental health.
Starting in the 1970s, the services of the Mount Sinai Selikoff Centers for Occupational Health grew out of the work of Dr. Irving J. Selikoff. Dr. Selikoff, a Mount Sinai physician, is known and remembered for his seminal research on asbestos-related disease, his tireless advocacy on behalf of workers, and his clinical and scientific contributions to the field of occupational medicine.
In the mid-1980s, the work of current Mount Sinai Department of Preventive Medicine Chair Dr. Philip J. Landrigan, other Mount Sinai occupational medicine physicians, and a broad coalition of occupational safety and health specialists, public health advocates, labor and civic leaders, and workers urged the New York State Legislature to commission a study of the problem of occupational related disease in the state. That report successfully demonstrated the huge human and financial burden of occupational disease in New York State, which led the New York State Legislature to create a unique statewide network of occupational health clinics. The Mount Sinai Selikoff Centers for Occupational Health is a founding member of the New York State Network of Occupational Health Clinics.
Currently led by occupational medicine physician, researcher, and scientist Dr. Roberto Lucchini, the Mount Sinai Selikoff Centers for Occupational Health are recognized nationally and internationally as leaders in the field of occupational health services. Our doctors offer cutting-edge and compassionate occupational health prevention and treatment services to workers as well as through unions, employers, and medical providers. Our services, including physical and mental health care, social work services and benefits counseling, industrial hygiene and ergonomic evaluations and consultations, employee wellness programs, and worker training and education sessions, are designed to address the full spectrum of occupational health needs.
Due to our excellence in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of work-related injuries and illnesses, the Mount Sinai Selikoff Centers for Occupational Health have been formally recognized as a Member of the New York State Network of Occupational Health Clinics and as a Clinical Center of Excellence of the World Trade Center Health Program.
