What is Occupational Health and Safety?
According to OSHA, employers are required to maintain a safe & healthy work environment for all their employees.
The purpose of occupational injury treatment is to prevent job-related injuries and illnesses by:
- Ergonomics (The study of people’s efficiency in their working environment)
- Observing the health of the workforce
- Encouraging safe working practices
- Supporting the management of sickness absence
One branch of occupational health is Occupational Health Injury Treatment.
How Is Occupational Injury Treatment Done at SNOHC?
Suppose an employee is injured at the workplace, no matter how severe. In that case, it’s considered an occupational injury and needs to be taken care of by the occupational health clinic in a contract with the business. There are multiple reasons for occupational injuries. They can happen due to trauma, wound, bruise, laceration, cut, chemical exposure, eye, heat, or musculoskeletal injuries.
Once the diagnosis is established, the patient will work closely with one of our providers to ensure prompt recovery. At SNOHC, patients get help for close monitoring and faster recovery without delay. Referrals to specialists will be made if the patient needs special care not offered at SNOHC. Compared to other centers, an appointment can be arranged on the same day.
Occupational injury treatment is our priority at Southern Nevada Occupational Health Center, so the patient may walk in without scheduling an appointment.
How Can an Injury Occur?
An injury is an unplanned or unintentional event of getting harmed without prior precautions. Damage can occur anywhere in the body. Injury can be visible if it is a wound, scar, scratch, lesion, or abrasion. But, there are internal injuries as well. For instance, if you get a muscle strain or sprain, or you happen to fracture your bone, it is known as an internal injury. Internal injury may not be visible on the skin, but it swells the muscles within the affected area. Also, inflammation is joint in internal injuries. This is why Occupational Injury Treatment becomes so essential.
Treatment of Internal Injuries
At SNOHC, you receive immediate medical attention if you are reported to have an internal injury. At SNOHC, you will be facilitated with an X-RAY service to ensure if there is any internal injury. The doctors will then look through the fractures or the muscle strain, if there are any. Internal injuries are more dangerous than wounds and scratches, so they will be treated immediately at SNOHC.
