This is an introduction into Occupational Medicine for DCs. Occupational Medicine is defined as services provided primarily to companies relating to employee working environments for prevention of illness and disease due to exposures such as loud noise, dust/fumes, chemicals, heavy metals, drugs, alcohol, and physical exertional exposures. When compared to CDL physicals for commercial drivers, there are an additional 12+ diagnostic tests that are either government mandated, or utilized by companies to prevent Worker’s Compensation injuries. The list of needed services include physicals, drug testing, alcohol testing, hearing testing, pulmonary lung testing, respirator questionnaire/physical, respirator fit testing, vision testing, heavy metals testing, hand dexterity testing, and more. This course reviews all of these diagnostic tools, certifies attendees in urinary drug test collections, and reviews the government rules and mandates for DOT, OSHA, and NIOSH that allow DCs to participate in providing these services. Because this is not “sick” care, these services are usually paid directly from the company to the doctor. DCs that master these services can be designated as the company examiner to provide occupational services as well as treatment of the company’s Worker’s Compensation injuries. City, county, state, and federal governments also contract occupational services.
