Laredo Occupational Health Services
Workplace occupational health plans are crucial for employers to remain compliant with occupational safety and health laws and to ensure safety and health in the workplace for their employees. Employees are entitled to a safe and healthy workplace with no recognizable hazards, and it’s the employer’s responsibility to ensure their safety while on the job. Employers must remove recognizable hazards when possible and provide the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) and safe, working machinery and equipment. In Laredo, occupational health services include biometric screenings, vision and hearing screening, vaccinations, titer testing (antibody testing), respirator fit testing, respiratory health exams, physical examinations, and proper training and education.
Texas does not have its own occupational safety and health plan, and private-sector employers in Laredo are covered by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). OSHA enforces the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (OSH Act), which was established to ensure a safe and healthy working environment for all employees by reducing injuries, illnesses, and fatalities in the workplace.

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