About Occupational Health & Safety
What is occupational health?
Occupational health is the branch of medicine that deals with the prevention and treatment of diseases and injuries that occur at work.
How is this different than seeing a family physician?
Occupational health clinics are not open to the general public - they only serve employers and their employees. With on-site visits, staff are able to provide focused injury care that utilizes their knowledge of the working environment. A “back to work” philosophy seeks to minimize case length and reduce workers compensation expenses.
Who works in an occupational health clinic?
Staff who work in an occupational health clinic specialize in work-related medical care, including preventative medicine and wellness. Nurses obtain training and certification in specialty areas, such as federal drug and alcohol test collections, OSHA compliant audiometric testing, pulmonary function testing and more.
How are these services billed?
Occupational health clinics bill directly to employers or directly to the employer’s insurance carriers - not to the employee’s personal insurance.
