Seattle Occupational Health Services
To protect both employees and employers, Seattle occupational health codes and regulations are used to provide guidance on best practices in the workplace. Workplace occupational health practices are commonly used by employers to help identify and mitigate workplace hazards that could lead to employee illness, injury, and death.
By identifying and mitigating workplace hazards that could possibly harm an employee, an employer also establishes protections for themselves and their business. Likewise, by reducing the frequency of workplace incidents, an employer can maintain high workplace productivity due to more employees not having to take off from work. Furthermore, lower injury and illness rates can help lower workers’ compensation insurance, overall saving money for employers in the long run.
In terms of Seattle occupational health services and policy regulation, employers should always refer to the numerous codes and guidance supplied by the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries. Depending on your specific industry, employers may need to comply with certain occupational health codes and regulations to avoid state fines and penalties.

Seattle 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 Seattle 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 Seattle, 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.
This is a package deal that covers a wide range of antibody testing, including varicella (Chickenpox), measles, mumps, rubella, and hepatitis B.
