What are the functions of occupational health services?
Employees and employers have workplace-health-related needs, and occupational health services meet those needs. For instance, if an employee gets hurt at work, they will need proper treatment and possibly rehabilitation or compensation, and the employer may need paperwork completed and for the employee to be treated in compliance with company regulations.
To treat an employee, an occupational health provider will provide various treatments and therapies and, if necessary, refer the patient to see a specialist, like a physical therapist. Sometimes it’s necessary for a provider to make sure an employee receives proper compensation, like compensation through worker’s comp, and a worker’s comp claim requires paperwork to be filled out and for both the employee’s and the employer’s needs to be represented properly. Also, occupational health maintains and promotes a safe, protective, and healthy work environment. This often means helping to create a hazard-free workplace.
What are the types of occupational health services?
Here at Chai Urgent Care, we can provide occupational health for employees and employers. Some of the many different occupational health services we provide include:
- X-rays and lab testing

Why are occupational health services important?
These services are important because they meet both employees’ and employers’ workplace-health-related needs. An employee will have their healthcare needs represented and met, and will receive compensation when necessary. A provider will take care of the claim and work with the employer and an insurance company. The provider will work with the insurance company on the employer’s behalf too, making sure the claim is handled fairly. Also, the provider can make sure the employee’s treatment is in compliance with company, DOT, and/or OSHA regulations.
Occupational health helps employees recover and get back to work quickly. Everyone benefits from this. Chai Urgent Care is happy to be able to provide occupational health services!
