Are You an Employer? The Importance of a Good Occupational Medicine Partner

Complete Health Partners is launching new occupational health services (like DOT physicals). These additional services will be an incredible opportunity for our neighboring businesses to partner with us as we both aim to keep people healthy, happy, and productive in and out of the workplace.

What is Occupational and Environmental Medicine?

  • Preemployment physicals
  • Accidents and injuries on the job
  • Drug testing
  • Fitness for duty exams

Why Comprehensive Occupational Medicine is good for Employers:

The Complete Health Partners Occupational Medicine model is the right healthcare partner for business organizations of any size. From pre-employment physicals to acute injury visits, Complete Health clinicians are available to meet the immediate medical needs of organizations and ensure the health of all employees.

Why is a DOT Physical critical?

There are many risk factors for truck drivers that make them more likely to cause an accident. Top concerns are health problems, lack of sleep, and trouble accessing healthcare. DOT physicals are required by law for a DOT license.

That is where Complete Health Partners comes in.

A Department of Transportation (DOT) physical is a physical exam required of people who drive commercial vehicles. The goal of a DOT physical is to make sure people who are driving commercial motor vehicles are physically, mentally, and emotionally fit. As demands on our drivers across the country continue it has become even more critical for us to proactively support employees who drive commercial vehicles.

Truck driving is one of the most dangerous jobs in the United States. In addition to driving accidents, truckers are also at high risk for equipment-related injuries and ergonomic injuries. Long hours on the road and the sedentary nature of trucking work also put truckers at a much higher risk for many lifestyle-related diseases and injuries.

The nature of truck driving makes many drivers susceptible to serious health problems, such as:

  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Cancer
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Elevated blood pressure

At Complete Health Partners we can change that.

Occupational Medicine is a win-win

The focus of occupational medicine fulfills the medical needs of the employers for their personnel, create a provision of care for work-related injuries as well conduct preventive services including safety programs, drug-free educational sessions, and corporate health services.

What are the benefits to the Employer?

  • Stimulating more efficient working methods and technologies.
  • Improved productivity through less sickness absence.
  • Keeping older workers in employment.
  • Safer workplaces.
  • Reduced costs. Workplace safety issues and on-the-job injuries can create financial strain on organizations managing tight healthcare budgets.
  • Reduced lost time. 

Complete Health Partners is here for you and your employees. Whether you’re scheduling an employee DOT physical, need sports medicine or telemedicine yourself, or have an employee with a medical condition that needs urgent attention, contact us today to partner with us for expert Occupational Medicine in West Nashville, Downtown or Hendersonville .
