New Orleans Occupational Health Services
New Orleans occupational health plans are crucial for employers to remain compliant with workplace occupational health laws, and to protect their employees from hazards in the workplace that lead to illnesses, injuries, and death. New Orleans employees are entitled to a safe and healthy workplace free from recognizable hazards, and it’s the employer’s job to ensure their safety. In New Orleans, occupational health services include biometric screening, respiratory health exams, vaccinations, titer testing (antibody testing), tuberculosis (TB) testing, physical examinations, and proper job training.
Since New Orleans does not have its own federally-approved state plan, New Orleans occupational health services for private-sector workplaces are covered by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). With the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, OSHA was created by congress to give employees safe and healthy working conditions by setting and enforcing standards and providing outreach, training, assistance, and education.
Federal OSHA requires that all employers provide their employees with safe working conditions free of recognizable hazards, keep floors in work areas clean and dry where possible, select and provide personal protective equipment (PPE) at no cost to the employee, and provide workers with training about potential job hazards in languages they can understand.

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