OHS strives to provide prompt, comprehensive medical care and courteous reporting of information for employers, employees and insurance companies in an efficient and cost effective manner.
OHS makes every effort to keep the employee on the job, using “modified” work status, when possible When the injury warrants “off-duty” status, we promote early return to work as soon as the employee’s condition improves. We work with the employer to adapt the employee’s activities to their limitations until the employee is able to work without limitations.
We offer Pre-Placement Physicals, Substance Abuse Testing (pre-placement,
post-accident and random) and other testing services for our industrial clients.
Because these services are a direct cost to the employer, we offer them to our
clients at a significantly reduced cost.
Pre- Placement Physicals and Drug Testing are valuable tools for assessing a
prospective employee’s suitability for employment.
