Issues the number of cases of the occupational diseases still a little, it needed to get attention from all of us, especially for the Government and the doctors who work in the health facilities. In 2011, PERDOKI and FKUI working with the Ministry of health of the Republic of Indonesia made the Diagnosis of Occupational Diseases training module for doctors. This module is used to train medical doctors who provide health care/medical job work in order to be able to do early detection of occupational diseases.
