Managing a lot of employees can be a tedious job – especially when many get sick or hurt and have trouble returning to work in a timely matter. With the help of worksite clinics, these issues can simply go away. A worksite clinic would provide your employees health services dedicated to making sure they have the resources needed to keep them healthy and even help them recover from an injury quickly. A few ways an U.S. HealthWorks’ onsite clinic services help employees return to work quicker are through:
- They can manage workplace injuries
An onsite clinic is able to provide first aid and professional healthcare assistance for an injury on the job. This way if an employee gets hurt or falls ill, there will be an onsite nurse or other medical professional to examine the injury.
- They can do physical examinations
DOT physicals, executive physicals, and pre-employment/post-offer physicals all make sure the employee is in the best condition for the position being offered to them. With all of these examinations, no one should be getting hurt because they are unable to carry a heavy box, or someone with back issues would ever be put in a job position that could potentially hurt their back. These exams are meant to weed out anyone not suitable for the position in order to prevent injuries from occuring.
- They can provide occupational health medical surveillance programs
With medical surveillance programs you will be able to prevent any exposure to hazardous chemicals and materials by examining the environment and employees of the workplace.
- They have therapy services for injured employees
If you have an employee who injured themselves, therapy services can provide a return-to-work testing and conditioning program in order to make sure they are able to come back and perform their job duties. It is important that employees aren’t returning to work when they are not completely healed. If they do, they could easily get injured and be out of work again.
- They can do flu vaccinations
The flu vaccination can help minimize absences from work! Having an onsite clinic gives employees a place to to get flu vaccinations. The flu is incredibly contagious and once flu season comes around, it is best if everyone at work has received a vaccination against it.
Having a worksite clinic helps make sure that employees are preventing illnesses and injuries. It also is meant to keep an eye on already injured employees to make sure they return to work safely and that they are in good health. U.S. HealthWorks wants to keep the costs down and keep your employees protected by helping you utilize an onsite clinic.
