Our Occupational Medicine Services

  • Preventative services: At DCH Health System, our goal is to prevent medical issues rather than treating them once they occur. Our preventative occupational medicine services include OSHA-compliance consultations, annual physical exams for employees, evaluations of the ergonomics on your worksite, hearing conservation, and respirator certification.
  • Early detection and intervention: Not all problems can be prevented, and that’s when we step in to provide skilled occupational medicine treatments for conditions such as chemical exposure, bloodborne pathogen monitoring, and evaluation of occupational skin disorders.
  • Work injury management: Many physically demanding jobs carry inherent risk, no matter how many safety precautions you take. DCH Health System offers timely treatment and tracking of acute injuries through medical monitoring at our clinic devoted to occupational medicine. We also provide a return-to-work program to ensure your employee is safe to continue in their job duties.
  • Drug-free workplace services: You want to make sure your employees are healthy and safe, meaning they are not under the influence of drugs. That’s why we offer drug testing, including U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) physical exams and drug testing. We can also help you develop a drug and alcohol policy for your workplace.
