What is occupational medicine?

Occupational medicine is a branch of medicine focused on the prevention of work-related injuries and illnesses. Occupational medicine physicians, or OMPs, are uniquely knowledgeable about proper workplace health and safety practices. In addition to performing examinations, evaluating test results, and prescribing treatments, OMPs can advise employers about health and safety practices.

Why does occupational medicine matter?

Occupational medicine matters because it protects the health and wellness of employees who work in hazardous occupations. It provides monetary protection and medical assistance to employees after an injury or illness and helps prevent both. 

Occupational medicine also matters because it educates employers about workplace safety and helps mitigate risks. 

What types of services does occupational medicine provide?

The qualified team at League Health Urgent & Primary Care offers a variety of occupational examinations, including numerous employee physicals and a variety of diagnostic tests. 

Common services include pre-employment physicals, return-to-work exams, employee vaccinations, and drug and alcohol testing. Occupational medicine also provides:

Medical survey exams

Medical survey exams include baseline exams, annual checkups, and exit physicals, all designed to maintain the health of people who work with and around hazardous materials.

Workers’ compensation

Workers’ compensation benefits pay for any medical care you require due to a work-related illness or injury. League Health Urgent & Primary Care offers walk-in services seven days a week, including extended evening and weekend hours. The practice also works with most local workers’ compensation networks. 

Drug and alcohol testing

Screen prospective employees or rule out workplace substance abuse as a cause of concerning employee behavior by sending them to League Health Urgent & Primary Care for fast and easy drug testing.

DOT physicals

DOT (Department of Transportation) physicals determine whether or not an employee is mentally and physically fit to safely drive commercial vehicles.

Diagnostic testing

The practice offers a variety of diagnostic testing options, including on-site X-rays and digital imaging, spirometry (lung function measurement), audiometry exams, vision testing, and labs. 

These resources allow the team to assess and treat injuries quickly and effectively, in less time and at a lower cost than the emergency room. 

Finally, the practice also offers health assessments, vision testing, and health coaching and education.
