Sacramento Occupational Health Services
Sacramento occupational health plans benefit employers by offering their workers a safe, healthy workplace and by helping them maintain compliance with workplace occupational health laws. Employees are entitled to a safe workplace free of recognizable hazards, and it’s the responsibility of the employer to ensure workplace occupational health and safety. In Sacramento, occupational health services include proper job training, working and safe equipment and machinery, plus physical examinations, vision and hearing screening, respiratory health screening, tuberculosis (TB) skin testing, vaccinations, and titer testing (antibody testing).
Sacramento occupational health regulations are part of the California State Plan, which was initially approved in 1973. The plan, referred to as Cal/OSHA, is administered through the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration and applies to private-sector employers in Sacramento and the state of California, with some exceptions that include maritime workers, contract workers with the United States Postal Service, and Native American reservations, among others. Cal/OSHA offers cooperative and voluntary programs to reduce fatalities, injuries, and accidents in the workplace.
In October of 2020, Sacramento County implemented the Worker Health and Safety Act to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. The act applies to businesses located in unincorporated areas of Sacramento County and introduced Sacramento workplace health regulations that include protocols for disinfection, social distancing, and mask-wearing.

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