Baltimore Occupational Health Services
Baltimore occupational health plans are crucial for employers to maintain a healthy and safe workplace and remain compliant under workplace occupational health regulations. Baltimore employers are responsible for ensuring the safety and health of their workers by supplying safe equipment, identifying and eliminating work hazards, and providing proper training. Baltimore occupational health services include respiratory health exams, tuberculosis (TB) skin tests and screenings, employment physicals, vision and hearing screening, vaccinations, and titer testing (antibody testing).
Baltimore occupational health is part of the Maryland Occupational Safety and Health (MOSH) Act, which provides regulations to employers with more than 11 employees, with some exceptions. MOSH keeps records of job-related fatalities, accidents, and injuries in Baltimore and the state of Maryland. Information obtained by MOSH must be maintained on OSHA 300, OSHA 300A, and the OSHA 301 forms. The compliance unit of MOSH is responsible for ensuring that employees remain compliant with MOSH regulations to maintain a safe and healthy workplace. MOSH has adopted many federal OSHA standards for general industry, construction, and agriculture, but has supplemented these regulations with requirements for Maryland.
The Maryland Occupational Health and Safety Surveillance Project (OHSSP) is funded by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). The project collects statistics and indicators on occupational illness and injury rates in Baltimore and the state of Maryland, collects reports from healthcare providers who treat patients with work-related illnesses and injuries and provides assistance to MOSH.

Baltimore Antibody Testing
Since the rapid spread of COVID-19 in 2020, antibody testing has become increasingly common in Baltimore. The COVID-19 Antibody Test is performed by a simple blood draw to check for antibodies that protect against the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
Hepatitis A is a highly contagious virus that can be spread via food, water, or close contact with individuals who are infected. Although there is not currently a cure for hepatitis A, vaccination can prevent infection. The Hepatitis A Antibody Test can identify whether a person has immunity against this virus.
The hepatitis B virus can be spread via blood or semen, and can lead to serious and even chronic liver infections. The Hepatitis B Antibody Test can check a person’s blood for immunity against this virus.
Most often spread through blood or contaminated needles, hepatitis C can also result in adverse effects on the liver. Left untreated, a hepatitis C infection can create serious health issues. Use this antibody test to check for immunity against hepatitis C.
The below option is a package deal that checks for immunity against hepatitis A, B, and C all from one simple blood draw. These viruses can all attack the liver and lead to inflammation or more serious complications.
The MMR Titer is used to determine if an individual has immunity against measles, mumps, and rubella.
The varicella-zoster virus, or Chickenpox, is known to be a highly contagious virus that causes a red, itchy rash on the skin. Since infection or vaccination often happens at a young age, individuals may be unsure of their immunity. This antibody test can be used to determine immunity against the varicella virus.
This is a bundle of antibody tests that covers a wide range of antibodies, including varicella (Chickenpox), measles, mumps, rubella, and hepatitis B.
