Dear Annals of Medical Research Readers

As of the end of March 2021, I have started to work as Chief Editor at Annals of Medical Research. Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 28 years.  Our Journal, which is online as an open access journal with monthly free access, is being scanned in many national and international indexes (ULAKBIM TR Dizin, Turkish Medline, EBSCO, Google Scholar, etc.). I would like to thank the Editors before me who contributed to this level. Our primary goal is to ensure the maintenance of this good state of the journal and to ensure that it is scanned in prestigious international indexes (Pubmed Central, SCI-Expended, etc.). In order to achieve these goals, it depends on the original research articles that can be cited and the articles published in our Journal to be cited sufficiently in other international journals. The contributions of our readers, reviewers and authors in achieving this goal are of great importance.

I hope to announce the news that we have reached our goals as soon as possible.

Aim: This article discusses the function of occupational physicians in relation to their preventive role in occupational health and the significance of maintaining their professional independence.
Material and Methods: The study examines Code no. 6331, the basis of Turkish occupational health and safety legislation and the Regulation on Occupational Physicians’ and Other Healthcare Professionals’ Duties, Powers, Liabilities and Training, which constitutes a regulatory framework for the occupational healthcare services. Amendments made to these texts will be evaluated in the context of the need for professional independence for occupational physicians.
Results: Amendments made in 2015 to occupational health and safety legislation benefit occupational physicians by subjecting employers to pay indemnity in case of termination of contract or causing a disadvantage for the physicians.
Conclusion: Amendments made in 2015 have been criticized in legal doctrine and by Turkish Medical Association for not providing full job security to occupational physicians. It is recommended that a special job security regulation similar to the one that trade union representatives have, be granted to occupational physicians. Another recommendation is, subjecting the termination of contracts of occupational physicians to the approval of administrative authorities such as labor inspectors.

Keywords: Occupational physician; occupational health and safety; occupational health and safety services
