Inova Occupational Health is as committed to preventing injury and illness as it is to restoring health.

Workplace Safety

Every dollar you spend on the direct cost of a workplace injury incurs additional indirect costs:

  • Reduced productivity and morale
  • Expenses associated with hiring and training
  • Equipment repair or replacement
  • Missed revenue opportunities
  • Increased workers' compensation premiums

While it may not be possible to prevent every on-the-job accident, a proactive approach can help. Tap your workers for safety improvement ideas. Take their suggestions and concerns seriously. Put feasible plans into practice. Follow up. And always treat a "near miss" as a warning to reevaluate safety measures and take steps to prevent a recurrence. Inova Occupational Health offers a variety of preventive programs for your workplace:

  • Pre placement physicals structured for specific jobs
  • Surveillance and worksite screening
  • Jobsite analysis incorporating work conditions into job descriptions
  • Injury prevention education
  • Regulatory compliance
  • OSHA respirator clearance exams
  • Ergonomics and cumulative trauma disorders control
  • Substance abuse management
