Synopsis

This film reports on the goals and purposes of the wide variety of workplace health services in the GDR, from prophylactic examination to ergonomic redesign of the working environment. Using a nationally owned enterprise as a case study, the documentary demonstrates that medical care in the workplace goes beyond simply helping sick employees return to work quickly.
