          Objective: This paper aims to describe the healthcare of workers, including institutions and their provided Social Services, to define the role of a Social Worker and to identify the methods of Social Work used in the company Slobodníková Vitkovice Ironworks in the former Czechoslovakia. Design: Historical research. Participants: Archival materials of Vitkovice Ironworks and available relevant literary sources on the topic covering the period between 1876 - 1954.
