What is Occupational Health?

Occupational health is the upkeep of the health and safety of the people in a workplace. Primarily geared towards educating and helping employees stay safe in their work environment. Occupational health services can vary from onboarding requirements for employees, ensuring they are fit for duty, to worker compensation injuries. Other services that some employers may require or need consist of:

  • COVID-19 Testing
  • Workers Compensation Injuries
  • Pre-Employment Testing
  • Drug and Alcohol Testing
  • DOT Physicals
  • Audiograms
  • Hearing Testing

  • Pulmonary Function Testing
  • Employer On-Site Services Testing
  • Respirator Fit Testing

Where Can I Get Occupational Health Care For My Employees?

When looking for an occupational health provider, you can’t just visit your local primary care provider; you will need to find someone who specializes in occupational health. You may find an urgent care or a specific healthcare provider specializing solely in occupational health. Some big manufacturing companies have their RN or NP on staff solely for occupational health.
