Occupational Medicine “is the medical specialty devoted to the prevention and management of occupational and environmental injury, illness and disability, and promotion of health and productivity of workers, their families and communities.” Occupational medicine physicians often work directly with employers to keep businesses running and employees safe and healthy on the job.
Many companies require new employees to have medical exams before beginning a new job. In addition, Occupational Medical Clinics perform workers compensation exams for work related injuries, as well as DOT exams for department of transport certifications.

Workplace injury is a serious issue and if you are injured in an accident at work, you are most likely entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Nearly every employer is required by state law to provide workers’ compensation insurance coverage for its employees. Additionally, it is important for you to report a workplace accident right away, even if you were not injured.
