Benefits of Occupational Health

It’s no secret that healthy workers are more productive. But did you know that partnering with Adena’s Occupational Health program can also help you reduce expenses? Work-related injuries can be very costly. Outside of medical care, an injured worker can also incur additional backfill, shift coverage and training expenses.


Workplace Health Needs

No matter the job, there is always a risk of injury, but good job safety practices and a trusted Occupational Health partner are key to lowering the risk of workplace injuries. Some injuries occur during an event, and others happen over time. Some examples include:

  • General labor - Sprains, strains and broken bones.
  • Factory work - Hearing problems or exposure to unsafe substances.
  • Desk workers - Back issues and repetitive stress injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
  • Health care workers - Back injuries, burnout, and occupational exposure and infections.
