Workplace Health & Employer Wellness

Workplace Health 

Controlling on-the-job injury and illness can be a complex problem for employers. The OLBH WorkPlace Health occupational medicine program can help your company with medical services and treatment for injured workers while also managing worker's compensation claims.

Your employees will receive prompt medical attention following a work-related accident at one of Bon Secours Kentucky Health System’s Bellefonte Primary Care locations. Emphasis is placed on providing the worker a continuity of quality care to promote recovery and an early return to productive work. Your company will be kept informed of all aspects of treatment including needed follow-up care and/or industrial rehabilitation. 

WorkPlace Health also assists the corporate community in the reduction of work-related medical expenses. The system provides employee education and testing to meet federal Occupational Safety and Health guidelines. In addition, the program's safety officers are available to conduct ergonomic and workplace evaluations to help identify problem work sites and can advise the appropriate corrective measures.

Additional corporate health services also are available including pre-employment drug screenings, employee physicals, first aid training, CPR instruction and certification and the OLBH Employer Wellness program (see below). On-site drug screenings and physicals are available by appointment.
