San Francisco Occupational Health Services
San Francisco occupational health plans are crucial for employers to maintain a safe and healthy workplace, preventing accidents and injuries among their employees. Workplace occupational health regulations also protect employers by helping them to maintain compliance with these laws. In San Francisco, occupational health services include education and training, pre-employment physicals and screenings, vaccinations or titer testing, and guidance on avoiding hazardous chemical and disease exposures in the workplace. San Francisco employers must ensure their employees receive proper training, safe work equipment, and safe working conditions free from hazards.
The San Francisco Department of Health‘s Department of Human Resources adopted an Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) to ensure safe and healthy workplaces for all San Francisco city and county workers. The goal of the program is to maintain injury- and illness-free workplaces by identifying hazards, correcting the hazards, investigating accidents and injuries, offering proper health and safety training to employers and employees, and ensuring employee compliance.

San Francisco 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 San Francisco 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 San Francisco, 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. Since infection or vaccination frequently occurs at a young age, individuals may be unsure of their vaccination status. This test can be used to confirm whether a person has antibodies against the varicella virus.
