Elevating Safety and Wellness in the Construction Industry

Discover our tailored occupational health solutions designed to meet the unique needs and challenges of the construction sector. We offer flexible medical support options for construction sites, including onsite clinics, mobile medical services, and near-site clinics. Partner with us for immediate response to employee illnesses or work-related injuries, ensuring your construction site's health needs are promptly and effectively met.

Benefits of Our Construction Medical Programs

  • Enhanced Worker Safety

    With our on-site clinics and mobile medical solutions, we provide immediate access to medical attention for injuries and minor illnesses. Our specially trained medical staff is equipped to handle a wide range of situations, ensuring prompt and appropriate care. This not only enhances worker safety but also minimizes project delays and maintains productivity.

  • Comprehensive Employee Health Services

    We understand that employee well-being is essential for a productive construction site. That's why we offer a range of employee health services tailored to the construction industry. Our customized health programs promote worker well-being, address underlying medical conditions, and improve overall health and productivity. We prioritize the health and safety of your workforce.

  • Efficient Follow-Up Care and Case Management

    In the event of an injury that requires hospitalization or recuperation time, our healthcare team manages the care by working closely with off-site medical staff and the injured employee. We ensure that appropriate treatment is provided, and follow-up appointments are scheduled and attended. Our team handles first report injury forms, witness statements, and manages workers' compensation record-keeping for a streamlined process.

On-Site Clinics and Mobile Medical Solutions

On-Site Services

Our on-site clinics bring medical expertise directly to your construction site. Equipped with essential medical equipment and staffed by experienced professionals, our clinics provide immediate treatment for injuries and minor illnesses. By addressing medical needs on-site, we minimize the need for external referrals, workers' compensation claims, and potential litigation. This keeps your Experienced Modification Rating (EMR) low and reduces costs.

Mobile Medical Services

In addition to our on-site clinics, we offer mobile medical services for construction projects that require flexibility and adaptability. Our mobile units are equipped to provide essential medical services such as drug and alcohol testing, functional capacity exams, hearing and basic vision testing, and pulmonary function testing. Our mobile solutions ensure that medical support is readily available wherever your construction site is located.

    Benefit of a Low EMR: Securing Construction Contracts

    Experience Modification Rate (EMR) plays a pivotal role in the evaluation of construction companies when it comes to bidding on contracts and maintaining successful partnerships. Contractors with a low EMR enjoy a competitive advantage in the construction industry. Government and private construction contracts often incorporate EMR as a key factor in the pre-qualification process. By showcasing a low EMR, contractors position themselves as reliable partners who prioritize safety and health on their job sites.

    Work Health Solutions understands the critical role that a low EMR plays in securing and maintaining contracts. Our on-site medical services and emphasis on safety and follow-up care contribute to a low EMR, benefiting both contractors and their workforce.

    Reducing Healthcare Costs and Worker Compensation Claims

    By implementing comprehensive on-site medical services, such as our on-site clinics and mobile medical solutions, Work Health Solutions helps construction companies save significantly on healthcare costs. Our skilled medical professionals provide immediate attention to injuries and minor illnesses, minimizing the need for off-site referrals and reducing medical expenses. With prompt and efficient on-site care, the reliance on workers’ compensation claims decreases, resulting in substantial cost savings for contractors.

    Mitigating the Potential for Litigation

    Prompt medical attention and efficient on-site care not only reduce healthcare costs but also minimize the potential for litigation. Studies have shown that injured employees are less likely to take legal action when they receive immediate medical treatment. By offering on-site medical services, Work Health Solutions ensures that employees receive timely and appropriate care, fostering a culture of safety and trust within the construction site. This not only reduces the likelihood of litigation but also promotes a positive work environment where employees feel valued and supported.
