Cincinnati Occupational Health Services
Workplace occupational health plans are crucial for employers to remain compliant with occupational health and safety laws and ensure the wellbeing of their workers. Employees are entitled to a safe and healthy workplace, free from recognizable hazards. Employers are responsible for removing hazards, when possible, and offering protection for these hazards. When necessary, employers must offer personal protective equipment (PPE), respirators when necessary, working and safe equipment and machines, proper job education and safety training, and vaccinations to protect them from infectious diseases.
In Cincinnati, occupational health services include titer testing (antibody testing), vaccinations, biometric screenings, vision and hearing testing, employment and pre-employment physicals, respiratory health exams, tuberculosis (TB) screening, and TB skin tests.
Ohio does not have a federally-approved occupational safety and health plan. In Cincinnati, occupational health laws are regulated at the federal level and must comply with the OSH Act of 1970. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) governs private-sector employers in Cincinnati and the state of Ohio. Safety and health standards for public-sector workplaces in Cincinnati are governed by the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC), which offers public employers compliance training services and assistance under Ohio’s Public Employment Risk Reduction Program (PERRP). PERRP ensures the health and safety of public employees in Ohio. In addition, Hamilton County offers a workplace health plan for Cincinnati and Hamilton County employees to reduce the risk of workplace injuries and illnesses. The plan remains compliant with local, state, and federal regulations, including OSHA’s regulations for construction and general industry.

Cincinnati Antibody Testing
The COVID-19 Antibody Test checks for antibodies in a person’s blood that protect against SARS-CoV-2. Use this test to determine if Cincinnati employees have previously recovered from COVID-19 or received a COVID-19 vaccine.
Hepatitis A infections can be spread via water, food, and close contact with individuals who are infected. Although it can be prevented by vaccination, people who are not vaccinated against Hepatitis A and do not have the antibodies to protect against this virus may be at risk for liver infections. If proof of Hepatitis A immunity is required for an employer in Cincinnati, this antibody test can be ordered.
Individuals who do not have antibodies that protect against Hepatitis B may be at risk for serious or even fatal liver infection. This virus can be contracted from bodily fluids, such as blood or semen. The Hepatitis B Antibody Test can determine if a person has immunity against this virus.
Similar to Hepatitis A and B, Hepatitis C infections can also result in complications with the liver. Hepatitis C infection is spread via blood, and therefore is most often a result of using contaminated equipment (such as needles). For people who need proof of Hepatitis C immunity or are unsure of their vaccination status, the Hepatitis C Antibody Test can detect the appropriate antibodies in the blood.
Left untreated, some hepatitis infections can cause liver damage, inflammation, and other serious health complications. The below bundle tests a person’s blood for immunity against all three types of hepatitis viruses.
MMR antibody testing is used to determine if a person has immunity against measles, mumps, and rubella.
More commonly known as Chickenpox, the varicella-zoster virus is a highly contagious virus that can be easily spread via air, skin, saliva, and surfaces. Since infection or vaccination frequently occurs at a young age, individuals may be unsure of their vaccination status. This test can be used to confirm whether a person has antibodies against the varicella virus.
This is a package deal that covers a wide range of antibody testing, including varicella (Chickenpox), measles, mumps, rubella, and hepatitis B.
