Chances are you or someone you know has experienced illness or injury on the job. Crisp Regional Occupational Medicine cares for employees of numerous companies in and around Cordele and Crisp County.
Occupational medicine focuses on the prevention, evaluation, treatment and resolution of job-related injuries and illnesses. It is the medical specialty that is dedicated to workplace health and wellness. Specialists in occupational medicine are trained to assess the origin of worker injury and illness, considering past history, work conditions and other factors so that injuries and illnesses are properly classified and treated appropriately to ensure a worker’s safe return to work.
Crisp Regional Occupational Medicine provides a broad array of occupational health and wellness services, including:
- Pre-employment exams and employment physicals
- Health screenings
- Drug and alcohol screenings
- Respiratory clearance/certification questionnaires
- Vaccinations and/or screenings (Influenza, tuberculosis, PPD, tetanus)
- Vision screenings
- Return-to-work evaluations
- Certified DOT medical exams
Federal law requires drivers of commercial motor vehicles (DMVs) to receive regular physical examinations. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has updated the Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations to better reflect the physical demands drivers face and to help them be safer on the job. DOT physicals are highly regulated for the drivers’ safety. They detect physical, mental, and emotional issues that can affect a driver’s ability to safely drive a commercial vehicle. Crisp Regional Occupational Medicine is certified to perform DOT medical exams, with special training to understand the regulations and prevent drivers from being inappropriately disqualified.
The Occupational Medicine staff at Crisp Regional also works with the hospital’s WellnessWorks program to provide support and services for the community.
