Workplace safety: Osha, or the department of occupational health and safety, keeps the workplace safe for workers and those who come into the work space. They oversee all safety issues, and infectious issues at the office, educate workers on safety issues, and enforce the rules.
Dr. Troy Ross
Occupational Medicine 24 years experience
Keep you safe: Occupational health is focused on making sure that employees are capable of doing their jobs, and that conditions at work do not put employees at risk. This is done through preplacement physicals and periodic surveillance exams. Occ health providers are also available as consultants for employees to discuss health concerns with.
