Occupational health care is a specialized branch of medicine that focuses on the prevention and treatment of workplace injuries and illnesses. It also deals with workplace safety and employee well-being. It differs from regular medical care in that it is specifically tailored to address the unique health needs and risks of employees in their workplace.
Some common workplace hazards that can be addressed through occupational health care include: physical hazards such as slips, trips, and falls, as well as ergonomic hazards associated with repetitive motions or awkward postures; chemical hazards such as exposure to toxic substances, gases, and dusts; and psychological hazards such as stress and burnout. Our program is focused on providing comprehensive care with transparent communication with your team.
Employers can ensure the safety and well-being of their employees by: conducting regular risk assessments to identify and evaluate hazards in the workplace; implementing effective controls to eliminate or reduce identified hazards; providing training and education for employees on how to recognize, avoid, and control hazards in the workplace; and providing access to health services and programs that promote employee health and well-being, such as employee assistance programs, health screenings, and fitness programs.
Our model is focused on three core pillars: transparency, speed, and quality. Our providers are well-trained on all occupational health protocols and understand the dynamic relationship between medical decisionmakers, employers, and employees. We provide each employer a dedicated team of coordinators to ensure every employer and employee knows about the appropriate path of care with our centers.

Furthermore, OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) and NIOSH (National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health) provide various resources and guidance on workplace safety and health, including training materials and compliance assistance. Online resources at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) are also valuable sources of information.
