Work Injury Prevention
Our Occupational Health Services help your company reduce liability and lost productivity by preventing employee injuries. And most injuries are preventable. Here are some services we provide:

Work Injury Rehabilitation
When injuries do occur, we have full-service facilities and experienced staff to provide the best of care to your employees. We provide outstanding emergency room services, physical therapists, exercise physiologists, case managers, safety specialists and even social workers to get your employees healed and back on the job as quickly as possible.
Maintaining a Drug and Alcohol-Free Workplace
We help you maintain a safe and productive work environment by providing 24-hour drug screening, breath alcohol testing, and hair testing. We also train your managers and supervisors to identify employees who may be abusing drugs or alcohol, and consult on developing policies and procedures for your drug-testing program.
Employee Assistance Program
Employees may face difficult issues at work or home that can seriously affect their performance. The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provides counseling from licensed social workers or psychologists to work on job conflicts, workplace communication, team building, consultation on policies and procedures, and management orientation training. EAP also helps with more personal issues such as marital and family problems, emotional issues, substance abuse and financial concerns.
