Workplace injuries, whether they occur suddenly or over time as a result of repetitive stress, are a major occupational concern for both staff and management. Workplace injuries can happen anywhere, from white-collar offices to construction sites, to hospitals, factories or farms. Each year, according to the US Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), millions of Americans suffer non-fatal injuries at work and more than 6,000 die from workplace injuries.
It is the purpose of Covenant Clinic's Occupational Medicine Service to assist both employer and employee in job-related injury prevention and treatment. Our goal is to help injured employees return to work in a timely manner and provide services and education to help them remain injury-free. Medical literature confirms that employees do best when returned to some duty as soon as possible, and we employ that "work and heal" philosophy.
We also work with the finest community and regional providers for related services such as audiometrics, pulmonary function testing, compounding pharmacists, physical therapists, brace and orthotic specialists, orthopedics, podiatry, chiropractic and IME examiners. The many services provided by Covenant Clinics and its affiliated providers can be tailored for any workplace.
