Jacksonville Occupational Health Services
Jacksonville occupational health regulations for private sector businesses fall under the federal Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act) and are enforced by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Jacksonville workplace health plans are crucial for employers to remain compliant under health and safety laws and are vital to the health and safety of their employees. In Jacksonville, occupational health services include physical assessments, such as pre-employment physical exams, respiratory health screenings, vaccinations or antibody testing, and proper education or training. Employers must ensure the health and safety of their workers by providing safe equipment and education, and by eliminating exposures to diseases and harmful chemicals.
Jacksonville occupational health services include the Florida Occupational Health and Safety Program. After receiving funding from the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health in 2010, this program was established by the Florida Department of Health to gather information on workers in Florida, work-related injuries and illness, and the risk factors for these incidents. The program uses collected information to prevent injuries and illness and maintain safe workplaces. In addition, the University of South Florida (USF) offers Jacksonville employers free onsite consultations to identify hazards in the workplace and assist them with meeting federal OSHA requirements. This program is called the University of South Florida Safety Florida Consultation Program and assists with education, training, noise monitoring, air sampling, and record-keeping.

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