Work Health and Safety offers a range of services. Employers can customize a program to fit their particular workplace needs.
Because our physicians are trained in occupational medicine and experienced in workers' compensation issues, we treat injuries quickly, minimize lost time, and return employees to work as soon as possible. Expert injury treatment is available on a walk-in, no-appointment-necessary basis. For treatment after hours, StatCare is located at our same location, while life-threatening and overnight injuries are treated at Mercy Medical Center emergency department.
We help employers meet all regulatory and employment guidelines and quickly communicate results for post-job-offer exams, return-to-work exams, Department of Transportation exams, hearing-loss-rating exams and respirator physicals. We also can work with your company to create a customized physical examination that meets your specific needs.
We collect and process samples according to strict federal standards, with positive results reported within 24 hours. Our certified medical review officer is always available at no extra charge when using our lab. When drug testing for post-job offers, random, "for-cause", DOT, and non-DOT drug screens, you can eliminate delays in making important decisions by working with WHSS. We also offer a consortium program for random drug testing.
Another useful tool for lowering health care costs is to prevent illness before it happens. We can tailor an immunization program to meet your needs for world travel, annual flu vaccinations, tetanus, hepatitis-A, hepatitis B, and a variety of other specialized vaccines. These are offered at your worksite or at our location.
Through Mercy Therapy Services, we offer complete physical and occupational rehabilitation at our North Canton location to help speed your employees' return to normal function.
We can help your employees recognize and overcome poor health habits and identify risk factors that can lead to increased health care claims and absenteeism. We offer CPR and industrial first-aid training, on-site immunizations, flu shots, bloodborne pathogen education and more.
"Our company has had the pleasure of working with the staff of Work Health and Safety for the past five years. Services they provide for our company include drug screening, work-related injury care and training for our Drug Free Workplace program. The team at WHSS has helped our injured employees return to work as soon as possible after an injury. The staff even toured our facility to better understand the work environment and the employees’ job descriptions. The professionalism of the staff and the quality of care provided is why our company continues to use WHSS for all of our company needs." - Amy Carrel - Safety Manager Flower Factory Inc
