Our occupational health program

Physicals and screenings

The Company Care team evaluates health, substance abuse and current sensory capabilities with physical examinations and screenings, including:

Wellness and prevention services

A large part of building and maintaining a safe and healthy workforce is preventing injury and illness. At Company Care, we offer occupational wellness and prevention services, including immunizations for hepatitis A and/or hepatitis B.

Occupational health diagnostic services

We have access to diagnostic laboratory and imaging services necessary to diagnosing work-related conditions. Some of these diagnostics include:

  • Audiogram booth for hearing screenings
  • Evidential breath testing (EBT) using intoximeter
  • Electrocardiogram (EKG)
  • X-rays

Occupational therapy and rehabilitation services

Our licensed occupational therapists offer guidance through various exercises and programs. With a personalized therapy and rehabilitation program, completing tasks at work becomes easier or less painful after experiencing chronic pain, an illness or an injury.

Workers’ compensation services

For on-the-job injuries, our occupational health professionals are trained to provide initial diagnosis and treatment at our clinic during regular business hours and at the hospital's emergency room (ER) after hours.

We offer comprehensive case management services to coordinate, monitor and evaluate the medical care of injured employees. Our staff members communicate to employers and/or workers' compensation insurers to confirm the medical plan of treatment is being adhered to for an "aggressive," "light duty" or "return-to-work" status.

A treatment plan will be tailored to the injured employee's specific care needs and will include:

  • Advanced diagnostic testing
  • Intensive physical rehabilitation with certified physical and occupational therapists
  • Medical follow up and management of ongoing injury or illness
  • Return-to-work and fitness-for-duty evaluations

When to go to Company Care vs. the emergency room

Company Care provides treatment for non-urgent occupational-related medical conditions.

Our occupational health team is able to treat many of the injuries and conditions a worker may experience, but, in times of medical emergencies, the employee should go directly to the ER.

When in doubt, go to the emergency room.
