A leader in its field, the Mount Sinai-Irving J. Selikoff Center for Occupational and Environmental Medicine (COEM) is known internationally as a center of excellence in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of work-related illness and disease.
With a commitment to providing innovative and comprehensive health services, as well as education, research and patient advocacy, the COEM combines clinical and preventive approaches in its specialty programs, which aid individual workers, labor organizations, area businesses, and others.
Occupational medicine, industrial hygiene, ergonomics, social work, and preventive outreach are among the services COEM programs utilize in targeting lung disease, musculoskeletal disorders, construction industry hazards, and chemical and other potentially toxic workplace exposures. Individual, confidential medical evaluations are offered, as well as screening and medical surveillance examinations for groups of workers with exposures to hazards such as asbestos, lead, and other toxic materials. These examinations are offered working in cooperation with unions, employers, and benefit funds. Work site evaluations may also be arranged.
As active advocates for workers with occupational illness, COEM staff members are active advocates for workers with occupational illness and have provided assistance in support of workers’ compensation claims. The COEM receives its core financial support from multi-year funding grants channeled through the New York State Department of Health. No one is denied services because of an inability to pay.
