What Is Occupational Medicine?

Occupational medicine (also known as “occupational health”) is focused on the treatment of work-related injuries and illnesses. Physicians trained in occupational medicine diagnose and treat work-related injuries much more effectively than most primary care physicians. They’re up-to-date on federal and state regulations for workforce health and safety, including Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Department of Transportation (DOT), Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), so they can make the best treatment plans and perform regulatory examinations. Occupational medicine physicians often work directly with employers to keep businesses running and employees safe and healthy on the job.

    3 Ways to Drive Workplace Health

    • Pre-employment and pre-placement screenings - Many industries require pre-employment screenings or human performance evaluations (HPEs) before placement to reduce health and safety risks in the workplace.
    • Proactive avoidance of workplace injuries and illness - Injury prevention programs identify employees at risk and prevent injuries, while medical surveillance screenings help protect employees from workplace hazards.
    • Employee training and education - Concentra uses a hands-on consultative approach to educate employees on injury prevention in the workplace. We also provide them with job-specific development programs.
