occupational health

Occupational medicine (also known as “occupational health”) is focused on the treatment of work-related injuries and illnesses. Our Nurse Practitioners are trained in occupational medicine to diagnose and treat work-related injuries much more effectively than most primary care physicians. They’re up-to-date on federal and state regulations for workforce health and safety, including Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Department of Transportation (DOT), so they can make the best treatment plans and perform regulatory examinations. Occupational medicine practitioners often work directly with employers to keep businesses running and employees safe and healthy on the job.

Benefits of Occupational Health

How can an occupational health program help your company’s bottom line?

Healthy workers are more productive! To help your workers be healthier, you should develop a preventive health program that includes:

  • Health Risk Assessments
  • Nutrition Coaching
  • Fitness Programs
  • Weight Loss Coaching
  • Health Coaching
  • Classes
  • Workshops

Work-related injuries can also be very expensive. The direct costs of injuries that are easy to measure, like the cost of medical care and insurance costs, are small when compared to indirect costs associated with workplace disruption, retraining, lost productivity, and the like.

Return your employees to work as soon as possible.

Return your employees to work as soon as possible.
When injuries do occur, they need to be managed well to return the injured worker to a state of health and productivity as soon as possible. A skilled occupational medicine specialist will work with the worker, employer, workers compensation insurer, and the medical system to help the injured worker regain his or her functional abilities and return to work.
