Lubbock Occupational Health Services
Workplace occupational health plans are crucial for employers to protect the safety and health of their employees and remain compliant with federal, city of Lubbock, and Texas laws. Employees are entitled to a safe and healthy workplace, free from hazards. It is the employer’s responsibility to remove recognizable hazards when possible, provide appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), and ensure employees have access to properly working, safe equipment. In Lubbock, occupational health services include vaccinations, titer testing (antibody testing), biometric screenings, respiratory health exams, tuberculosis (TB) screenings, TB testing, vision and hearing exams, employment and pre-employment physicals, and proper education and job training.
Texas does not have an OSHA-approved state plan, so private-sector workplaces are governed by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Lubbock employers must become familiar with Lubbock, Texas, and federal workplace occupational health and safety laws.

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