What does occupational health mean?
Both employees and employers have health-related needs at work, and occupational health strives to meet those needs. For example, if an employee gets injured in the workplace, he or she will need proper treatment and possibly even rehabilitation, mental health-related services, and/or compensation, and the employer may need paperwork completed and for the employee to be treated in compliance with company regulations. Also, occupational health promotes and helps to maintain a safe and healthy work environment for employees.
What is the main focus of occupational health?
In general, occupational health is about meeting the many needs of employees and employers, but first and foremost, treating and possibly rehabilitating and protecting employees. To protect employees, occupational health providers may help employers create safe, hazard-free work environments. To treat and rehabilitate employees, a provider can offer a number of specific treatments and therapeutic services and, if necessary, offer a referral to see a specialist.
Also, if applicable, a provider will try to make sure the employee receives proper compensation, like compensation through worker’s comp. Worker’s comp claims require paperwork to be completed and for both the employee’s and the employer’s needs to be represented. We can do this at our clinic.
Some of the many occupational health services AFC Urgent Care provides for employees and employers include:
- Employee healthcare for common, minor work injuries like minor burns, cuts, and fractures
- Employee care for common, minor work illnesses like minor respiratory illnesses
- Employer pre-employment physical exams

Why is occupational health important?
With quality occupational health care, both employees’ and employers’ needs can be met. For an employee, an occupational health provider can represent and meet their healthcare needs so they can receive the care and compensation they require. Also, a provider can take care of any claims and work with an employer and an insurance company on the employee’s behalf.
Likewise, for an employer, a provider can work with an insurance company on the employer’s behalf and make sure the claim is handled fairly. Also, a provider can ensure an employee’s treatment is in compliance with company, DOT, and/or OSHA regulations.
Professional occupational health care helps employees get better and get back to work quickly, benefiting both the employee and the employer. We’re very happy we can provide it to you here at AFC Urgent Care!
