Local information for Birmingham Occupational Testing

Since the state of Alabama does not have its own occupational safety administration, Birmingham occupational health rules are primarily dictated by federal Occupational Safety and Health (OSHA) guidelines, as well as by state and local law.

Carefully following workplace health guidelines can create significant benefits for both employers and employees. For employers, ensuring compliance can help limit liability if a job-related injury, illness, or death occurs. In addition, creating a safe and healthy workplace can improve employee morale and reduce both sick calls and workers’ compensation claims.

Employees who understand and follow Birmingham occupational health rules are less likely to suffer from a work-related injury or illness and can also avoid unintentionally creating an unsafe working environment for their coworkers. It’s also important that employees know how to report unsafe working conditions, so they can be resolved before a serious incident arises.

Employees wishing to access Birmingham occupational health services can reach out to the federal OSHA Birmingham regional office, located in the Medical Forum Building at 950 22nd Street in Birmingham.

Some Birmingham workplace health requirements are designed to confirm that a candidate for employment is physically fit enough to perform the duties of the job. This can help prevent on-the-job injuries and reduce the chances that an unfit employee could unintentionally create a dangerous situation for his or her coworkers.

For example, the Birmingham Police Department requires a pre-employment physical fitness screening, as well as a medical examination and a psychological screening.

Other occupational health regulations are designed to protect employees from contracting vaccine-preventable diseases during the course of their work and prevent them from spreading these diseases to others. For example, Admin. Code r. 420-5-7-.06 requires hospitals to establish employee vaccination requirements that are consistent with federal guidelines, including requiring an annual influenza vaccine.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting vaccination mandates, officials found the need to address a new set of workplace occupational health issues. On October 25, 2021, the governor of Alabama issued Executive Order 724, directing state agencies to oppose “over-reaching” federal vaccine mandates by refusing to impose penalties for non-compliance. On November 4, 2021, Senate Bill 9 was signed into law, prohibiting employers from mandating vaccines without religious and medical exemptions and providing employees who were denied exemptions with the opportunity to appeal.
