What Occupational Health Services Do You Offer in Texas?
Our occupational health services are meant to help proactively protect workers from potential illness or injury due to work-related activities. They include assessments and screenings for potential risks at the workplace, such as hearing tests and vision tests. They can also provide insight into how different working conditions may affect a person's physical and mental well-being.
Our team also provides treatment for minor injuries that happen at work. We can generally work with your organization’s workers’ compensation insurance.
Our Houston occupational health services include:
- Pre-employment physicals. The purpose of the pre-employment physical exam is to identify any underlying medical conditions that may affect the safety or performance of an employee in a particular role. For example, if an applicant has hearing loss that could interfere with communication or cognitive testing that would highlight any issues related to mental health or fatigue. Additionally, this exam can help employers assess the ability of a potential employee to handle certain tasks or roles within their workplace environment, such as operating heavy machinery or working at heights. Our pre-employment physicals are comprehensive and can be tailored to suit your organization’s specific needs.
- DOT physicals. A DOT physical is a full medical examination that is specifically designed to evaluate the physical condition and capabilities of potential employees who will be performing certain jobs classified as "safety-sensitive" by the U.S. Department of Transportation (hence “DOT”). The goal is to ensure that potential employees can safely and effectively handle the duties and responsibilities associated with operating commercial vehicles. It also works to detect any underlying health issues that could affect an employee's safety or performance on the job. For example, if an applicant has diabetes or high blood pressure, they might not be able to safely operate a truck or bus.
- Drug screens. Drug screens ensure that employees are not under the influence while they are on duty and that they adhere to the company’s policy on substance use. Drug screen results help employers identify any potential risks associated with an employee’s use of certain substances and can serve as an early warning sign for when additional interventions may be necessary. Regular drug screenings may also deter employees from using drugs or alcohol while at work, helping employers maintain a safe workplace environment by reducing the number of accidents and injuries due to substance abuse or impairment on the job.
- Treatment for minor work injuries. Our clinics are equipped to treat a variety of minor work-related injuries, including cuts and abrasions, sprains and strains, contusions and bruises, and lacerations. Keep in mind that Brazos Urgent Care is not able to provide emergency care. If an employee suffers a serious injury that requires emergency care, call 9-1-1 or send them to the nearest emergency room.
