Lexington-Fayette Occupational Health Services
Lexington occupational health plans are crucial for employers to protect the health and safety of employees and maintain compliance with workplace occupational health laws. Employees are entitled to a safe workplace without recognizable occupational hazards. It is the employer’s job to identify potential hazards, remove the hazards when possible, and provide protection to all employees. In Lexington, occupational health services include antibody testing (titer testing), biometrics screenings, employment and pre-employment physicals, respiratory health exams, tuberculosis screening, TB testing, vaccinations, vision and hearing screening, and proper training and education.
Lexington workplace health includes the Kentucky Occupational Safety and Health Plan (Kentucky OSH), which was initially approved in 1973 and is part of the Kentucky Labor Cabinet’s Department of Workplace Standards. The plan applies to all private-sector workplaces in Lexington and the state of Kentucky, with some exceptions. Kentucky OSH includes federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards, incorporated with state-specific regulations. Kentucky OSH also offers onsite consultation services to help both private and public employers. Voluntary and cooperative programs offered by OSH help to reduce injuries, illnesses, and fatalities in the workplace.

Lexington-Fayette 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 Lexington-Fayette 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 Lexington-Fayette, 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.

This test can be used to confirm whether a person has antibodies against the varicella virus.
