Employee Health Clinic

Occupational Health is a specialty that considers the effects of work on health. It also considers an individual's health, ability, and fitness to perform a particular job. The aim of Occupational Health is health promotion and prevention of work-related illness and injury by:

  • ensuring the employee's work does not in any way damage or compromise the employees’ health;

  • encouraging safe working practices;

  • ergonomics (studying how you work and how you could work better);

  • monitoring the health of the workforce;

  • supporting the management of sickness absence;

  • working with district leadership to implement policies and ensure health and safety compliance;

  • conducting pre-employment health assessments;

  • supporting health promotion and education programs;

  • providing vaccinations;

  • providing free COVID-19 testing for employees;

  • treating workplace injuries;

  • managing worker’s compensation cases;

  • encouraging workers to take responsibility for their own health through health education and disease management programs, such as smoking cessation, exercise/fitness, nutrition and weight control, stress management, control of chronic illnesses, and effective use of medical services;

  • provide guidance, counseling, and referral advice to employees around non-work-related health problems;

  • surveying fitness for duty;

  • working with leadership to offer advice and guidance around making reasonable adjustments to your working conditions.
