Home » Occupational Medicine

Occupational health services are essential for maintaining the well-being of individuals within the workplace. The nature of these preventive and proactive measures is designed to protect employees from occupational hazards and ensure a healthy work environment. We offer access to various health screenings, risk assessments, and interventions to contribute to the early detection and management of work-related health issues for organizations and their employees.

There are regulated requirements to offer medical assessments and surveillance programs for certain industries. Additionally, pre-placement testing protocols based on bonafide job requirements can ensure that your new hires are fit to work and have the physical capacity to perform the job. Baseline medicals provides entry risk level assessments and data for measurement against the employee’s complete lifecycle with your organization.

These services support the health of workers, and result in bottom line impacts in reducing workplace injury and illness.

Pre-Travel Medical Services

The increase in international business travel has put employees at a greater risk for illnesses found outside of Canada. Whether it’s medical assessments, vaccinations, or personalized health advice tailored to the specific health risks and requirements of another country, there are several factors that require attention prior to travel.

Medical advice for travel allows your employees to stay informed about necessary precautions and ensure reduced health risks during business travel.

Immunization Programs

Some workplaces require immunization to protect against specific health risks of the workplace. Our physicians will review the requirements and customize a protocol of consultation and immunization to protect your employees and the organization’s risk.

Throughout the Influenza season, workplace flu programs provide effective protection for employees and reduce exposure risks at workplaces. A 2017 study showed that each case of influenza that resulted in hospitalization ended up costing the health care system between $14,000 and $20,000. With an estimated 12,000 influenza hospitalizations each year, the cost to the Canadian economy is between $168 and $240 million6.

Our nurses provide effective immunization programs at worksites which supports organizations in offering this effective health promotion program.
