Abstract

2003 is the year of disability. This paper briefly illustrates the multiform relationships between occupational medicine and disability, discussing the complex legislation on this matter. A historiographic account is presented of the image of the disabled individual through the centuries. The main terms regarding disability are defined according to current legislation. Current Italian laws are difficult to interpret and to be put into effect. In this process, the occupational physician may be asked to perform several duties, including diagnosis and certification, fitting the disabled to work, safeguarding his/her moral and legislative rights, prevention and sanitary surveillance. Some professional experiences of the authors (regarding certification of the working capability, medico-legal recognition, and adaptation to work) are finally presented.
