Glendale Occupational Health Services

Workplace occupational health plans ensure the health and safety of employees and help employers remain compliant with occupational health and safety laws. Employees are entitled to a safe and healthy workplace, free from known hazards that might result in injuries, illnesses, or fatalities. In Glendale, occupational health services include biometric screenings, tuberculosis (TB) screenings, TB skin testing, vision and hearing tests, physical examinations, respiratory health screenings, respirator fit testing, vaccinations, titer testing (antibody testing), and proper training and education. Glendale employers must remove recognizable workplace hazards when possible and provide the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), along with properly working, safe machinery and equipment.

In 1974, the Arizona State Plan was initially approved, and it is referred to as the Arizona Division of Occupational Safety and Health (ADOSH). The Arizona State Plan applies to all private-sector workplaces in Glendale and the state of Arizona, with some exceptions. The plan has adopted many federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards with some additional, unique standards. Glendale occupational health regulations include these unique standards regarding general industry, compressed gas and air, commercial driving operations, construction, fall protection, agriculture, field sanitation, enforcement programs, and hand-held equipment. Employers must become familiar with federal, state and city of Glendale workplace health laws and occupational health services.

Glendale Antibody Testing

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

As our most comprehensive package for antibody testing, this option is a great choice for people looking for proof of immunity or for more information about their vaccination status.
