What is Occupational Medicine?
Occupational Medicine is the area of Preventive Medicine concerned with the health, safety, and performance of workers. In addition to providing medical care to workers with work-related injuries and illnesses, Occupational Medicine specialists work with businesses, employees, regulators, insurers, public health, and other occupational safety and health professionals to create safer workplaces.
Why is an Occupational Health program important to an employer’s bottom line?
Healthy workers are more productive, and work-related injuries are 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, etc.

Can you assess the physical ability and/or medical qualifications of our applicants to perform a job?
Our clinics perform post-offer/pre-employment and hazardous materials examinations to determine if prospective employees meet the physical and medical requirements to perform the essential functions of a job. These examinations are performed by licensed practitioners and extensively test for musculoskeletal deficits. These evaluations can include physical ability tests that mimic particular functions of a job. After review of the job description our practitioners will determine a work status.
