Occupational Health Q & A

What is occupational health?

Occupational Medicine is a medical specialty recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialies focused on the well-being and safety of employees in the workplace. 

HHC Workers’ Health & Urgent Care provides occupational health services to many businesses in and around the Philadelphia region. The providers emphasize injury prevention and employee education to promote productivity and safety.

What are some examples of occupational health services?

HHC Workers’ Health & Urgent Care offers various occupational health services, including:

Physical exams
Many businesses require new hires to undergo a physical exam before starting a new position. During a physical, your provider completes a head-to-toe exam, assessing your general health and well-being, as well as your risk of injury. 

If your provider identifies an underlying medical issue, they make personalized treatment recommendations.

Lab work
Lab work analyzes bodily fluids, such as blood, urine, or saliva, to diagnose underlying medical issues.

At HHC Workers’ Health & Urgent Care, the team offers several types of employment-related lab work, including drug and alcohol testing, workplace drug screening, and pre-placement bloodwork. Your provider sends the test results to your employer afterward.


Diagnostic testing
Your profession may require specific diagnostic testing to ensure you can perform your job duties safely and effectively. Employees that wear respirators may require fit or pulmonary function testing. Those employees working in safety-sensitive positions will often require vision and hearing or audiology testing. Many healthcare workers will also require X-rays to rule out infection with certain communicable diseases.

If you’re injured on the job and require workman's compensation medical services, contact HHC Workers’ Health & Urgent Care immediately.
