Oil industry healthcare and treatment: Green tree standing on an ancient root
Ali Yazdi Nejad *
Abstract:   (244 Views)
Considering 1908 the base for oil exploration, it can be asserted that with the presence of Dr. Yang, the Petroleum Health Organization was formed about one hundred and ten years ago and the enormous bases on which it was founded still stand firm after a century. Petroleum (Oil) Health has many features that can be introduced as an efficient and effective model in the country and used as a pilot study by the Ministry of Health and Medical Education and other health organizations in the country. A review of the history of Petroleum (Oil) Health and treatment shows that despite the many vicissitudes in the status of the organization, what has been evident all these years is the systematic and inclusive view of the founders of this ancient organization to man and his pains. They viewed health as a whole, a vision that did not conceive of maintaining the health of the oil industry's employees apart from the health of other people that lived next to them and the health of the city in which they were residents. Plans that have been formulated and implemented at the time seem surprising: attention to water hygiene and providing safe drinking water, malaria eradication programs, localized plan to fight tuberculosis, monitoring food hygiene in industrial cities and operating areas , engaging in disease prevention programs (including vaccination, screening), and not neglecting to educate clients and insured people on comprehensive and rigorous programs in the field of industrial medicine and occupational health, Recruiting the most efficient educated medical personnel from universities inside and outside the country, Providing training courses for physicians and other health care workers at home and abroad, convene annual scientific congresses in the field of petroleum medicine and health based on information obtained from industry personnel’s health indicators and their compliance with the latest medical developments in the world and finally providing services to residents of industrial cities not employed in the oil industry.
