What Is an Occupational Medicine Clinic?

An occupational medicine clinic provides comprehensive medical services for work-related injuries and illnesses. The practitioners at these clinics understand how to treat workplace injuries much better than primary care providers and are an easier option for employees than an emergency room. (Not to mention, they’re a much more affordable option for employers.) Occupational medicine clinics stay up to date on state and federal regulations for workplace health and safety and often work directly with employers to provide the health services they need.

What Services Can Be Found at an Occupational Medicine Clinic?

An occupational medicine clinic can provide a broad range of services for employers in addition to workplace illness and injury treatment. Some of the services you can expect include:

  • Pre-employment and return-to-work physicals
  • Drug and alcohol testing
  • Hearing and vision screenings
  • Onsite diagnostics, including EKGs, X-rays, and lab testing
  • Tetanus and flu vaccinations

Why Should a Business Partner with an Occupational Medicine Clinic?

Developing an occupational health partnership with one of these clinics helps to facilitate the treatment process for both employers and employees. Employees know exactly where to go when they get injured on the job or need a health screening, and employers can keep updated on the occupational health services that are being provided.
