Garland Occupational Health Services
Workplace occupational health laws ensure the safety and health of employees and help employers remain compliant with occupational safety and health laws. Employees are entitled to a safe workplace, free from recognizable hazards, and it is the employer’s job to remove these hazards when possible and offer employees personal protective equipment (PPE). In Garland, occupational health services include vaccinations, titer testing (antibody testing), physical examinations, biometric screenings, vision and hearing screenings, respiratory health screenings, tuberculosis (TB) screenings, TB skin tests, and proper training and education.
Texas does not have its own occupational safety and health state plan, so Garland employers must comply with federal workplace occupational health laws and regulations. These include the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, which is regulated by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). In addition to federal regulations, Texas has adopted some workplace occupational laws that include the Hazards Communication Act. Garland employers must become familiar with federal, state of Texas, and city of Garland occupational health laws.

Garland Antibody Testing
Since the rapid spread of COVID-19 in 2020, antibody testing has become increasingly common in Garland. 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.
