  • Medical Employee holding up a drug testing cup

    DOT Random Testing - Employees operating vehicles in safety-sensitive positions must comply with the DOT Drug and Alcohol Testing Program. Employers are required to have strong programs to prevent drug and alcohol use in the workplace by vehicle operators. Safety-sensitive positions may not only be driving positions, but this program specifically refers to those employees whose duties include driving vehicles.

  • Employee holding up a flu shot sign

    Worker exposure to certain diseases can be minimized by mandatory and voluntary vaccination. Influenza (flu) is one of those diseases for which a vaccine exists. However, it is also a disease that can change and it is seasonal, mostly affecting people during winter months.

  • Medical employee entering information into an ipad

    Occupational Health Screening - Employers are responsible for providing a safe and healthful workplace. This is mandated in California by the IIPP and nationally by the federal OSH Act. Sometimes this may involve medical screening to ensure that employees’ health is not being adversely affected by exposure to hazardous materials. There may also be times when testing is required to safeguard others with whom the employee may come in contact.

  • Tick on a blade of grass

    Tick Screening - Ticks carry a number of diseases that can be infectious to humans. The most commonly known is Lyme disease and is the most widespread. Other diseases carried by ticks can be regional such as the Rocky Mountain spotted fever.

  • Tuberculosis medication capsules

    Tuberculosis Screening - Employees are at risk of exposure to TB if they work with high risk groups. High risk groups susceptible to TB infection include those who are immuno compromised, recent immigrants from countries where TB is prevalent, those living in close communities such as nursing homes, or young children. Programs should be in place to prevent exposure and to identify individuals with active infection.

  • Vaccination checklist

    Vaccinations - Vaccines are available for many different diseases. Most people received some vaccines as children. Boosters or titer checks may be required for workers who have previously been vaccinated but routinely come in contact with diseases such as chickenpox, flu, or measles. Other vaccines for less common diseases may be recommended for workers who occasionally come in contact with an infected individual, or infected materials.
