Workplace Injuries Q&A

What are workplace injuries?

The term “workplace injuries” refers to wounds, fractures, or other trauma incurred while performing job-related duties. Some common workplace injuries the team at Occupational Health Services Medical Group treats include:

  • Slip and falls
  • Being struck or caught by moving equipment
  • Automobile accidents
  • Fires and explosions
  • Overexertion or repetitive use injuries

If one of your employees experiences a workplace injury, it’s important to make an appointment with the team at Occupational Health Services Medical Group. 

The sooner your team member receives a diagnosis, the sooner they can take steps to heal and return to their normal quality of life.

How do workplace injuries affect businesses?

Even one workplace injury can negatively affect your business and workforce. The team at Occupational Health Services Medical Group specializes in treating occupational injuries and can help you navigate the workers’ compensation process.

By partnering with Occupational Health Services Medical Group, your business can experience improved return-to-work (RTW) outcomes, fewer OSHA recordables, lower overall health care costs, and shorter injury case durations.

What should I do if an employee is injured while working?

If one of your team members experiences a workplace injury, begin the workers’ compensation process immediately. Then, encourage them to make an appointment at Occupational Health Services Medical Group.

During your employee’s initial appointment, the team reviews their medical history, conducts a comprehensive physical exam, and asks them about the injury, including what they were doing, how it happened, and the symptoms they’re experiencing as a result. The team combines all of this information to develop a custom care plan for your team member.

What is recovery like following a workplace injury?

The team at Occupational Health Services Medical Group offers a unique treatment model that educates injured employees on the benefits of return to work and discusses the biopsychosocial challenges that can delay recovery.

The team emphasizes gradually regaining normal function to achieve sustainable recovery. This custom approach allows injured employees to complete their treatment plans while reducing lost-duty days and medically unnecessary disabilities.

This process benefits both businesses and employees. It helps streamline the workers’ compensation process and ensures injured individuals receive the necessary care as quickly as possible.
