For Workers

Our doctors and healthcare providers at the Mount Sinai Selikoff Centers for Occupational Health are experts in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of a wide array of occupational health conditions. We offer comprehensive, patient-centered, and uniform clinical services at all three of our clinical locations.

  • Do you work with asbestos, solvents, lead, or other dangerous materials?
  • Does your job involve repeating the same physical motions over and over, working in uncomfortable positions, or include constant heavy lifting?
  • Do you have difficulty breathing?
  • Do your wrists, hands, or arms ache or feel numb?
  • Do you feel differently—physically or emotionally—since you did 9/11 rescue, recovery, or clean-up work?
  • Do any of your co-workers have similar symptoms?
  • Do you feel fewer symptoms when you are away from work?

If you answer yes to any of these questions, please contact us. We are here to help you.

We pride ourselves on providing competent and compassionate care to the “whole worker.” Our doctors, mental health providers, social workers, and industrial hygienists know that occupational health conditions affect more than just a worker’s physical health. Work-related injuries and illnesses can also affect your emotional well-being, job safety and security, and social and financial health. Our committed staff at the Mount Sinai Selikoff Centers for Occupational Health are prepared to work with you to address the full spectrum of your occupational health needs.

Our services to workers include:

  • Confidential medical exams for current and retired workers with health problems that might be related to their work
  • Treatment for work-related medical conditions and referral to multiple medical service areas at the nationally ranked Mount Sinai Hospital as needed to address any of a worker’s health needs
  • Medical screenings for groups of workers who have been exposed to work-related hazards, such as asbestos, lead, and World Trade Center related exposures
  • Education on how to avoid or reduce exposures on the job
  • Work-site evaluations to identify possible safety and health hazards, and recommend solutions
  • Specialized work-site ergonomic evaluations for workers with musculoskeletal disease who use computers
  • Social work services to address disease-related personal and family problems, including one-on-one counseling and monthly support groups
  • Assistance with Workers’ Compensation and other benefits to which you may be entitled
