What is occupational medicine?

What are the benefits of occupational medicine?

Occupational medicine positively supports both individuals and their employers alike. Its benefits include:

Reduces risk of injury

Preventive care measures like fit-for-work assessments, return-to-work assessments, and annual physicals help reduce the risk of severe injury or illness.

Better medical outcomes

People who receive immediate medical attention and comprehensive checkups following a workplace injury typically recover more successfully than those who don't. 

Builds trust

Employers that integrate occupational medicine into the workplace demonstrate that employee safety and well-being are a priority. This careful act makes employees feel more valued and so are more forthcoming if they do have any health concerns.

Improves workplace health

A safe workplace creates a more effective, productive environment and empowers team members to take control over their own health and wellness too.
