Occupational Health and Wellness

Creating and maintaining a safe work environment!

Occupational Health and Wellness

Occupational health services are designed to achieve and maintain the highest standard of health and well-being for the worker through preventative medicine, education, and injury management. Workers can be favorably or adversely affected by their work environment. Utilizing a foundation of education and ergonomics, our services can enhance the safety of your work place by preventing injuries and minimizing risks. However, in the case of an unforeseen injury, our occupational health experts can assist your organization to navigate the complexities of work injury management, thus helping you maximize productivity and maintain a competitive advantage in an ever-changing work environment.

As part of our comprehensive occupational health and wellness program we can educate your employees about fatigue and  sleep disorders and give them tools to get a good night's sleep. Our occupational health providers work closely with the board certified sleep specialists at the St. Alexius Sleep Center to provide screening, diagnosis, and treatment for sleep disorders such as Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
