We partner with you to keep your employees physically and mentally healthy both on and off the job. We take a holistic approach to occupational health by assessing risks for disease and injury in the workplace, social and individual factors, and ensuring access to health services.
Prevention through Occupational Health
The aim of occupational health is to prevent work-related illness and injury by:
- Encouraging safe working practices
- Ergonomics (studying how you work and how you could work better)
- Monitoring the health of your workforce

Occupational Health FAQs
Notify your supervisor and complete a First Report of Work Injury. If you need medical care, visit your nearest MedHelp clinic, no appointment needed.
Risk Management determines if the condition is compensable under AL Workers' Compensation. You can be seen at MedHelp for an initial consultation regardless of the Workers' Compensation decision.
There are no charges for professional services at our clinics. However, lab tests and/or medical supplies for non-work-related conditions will incur charges to your insurance. Costs not covered by insurance will be your responsibility.
Of course! Walk-in services are available for vaccines, labs, TB tests and urgent medical care.
All of our clinics are open during lunch. For information about clinic hours, visit our locations page.
For non-occupational testing, your MedHelp provider can order lab work in-house, and you can present to Occupational Health to have your blood drawn. We do not accept lab orders from providers outside MedHelp. We do not charge you for the visit, and the lab will bill your insurance.
Most vaccines are safe while breastfeeding. Live virus vaccines should be avoided in pregnancy but are generally OK while breastfeeding. For more information, please visit the CDC website which lists all common adult vaccines and safety information.
