Winston-Salem Occupational Health Services
Workplace occupational health plans are critical for employers to protect the health and safety of their workers and remain compliant with federal, state, and local occupational health laws. Employees are entitled to a safe and healthy workplace, free of hazards that might lead to occupational illnesses, injuries, or fatalities. It’s the employer’s responsibility to remove these hazards when possible, offer the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), and ensure their workers have access to working and safe equipment.
In Winston-Salem, occupational health services include vaccinations, titer tests (antibody tests), biometric screenings, physical examinations, vision and hearing screenings, respiratory health exams, respirator fit testing, tuberculosis (TB) screenings, TB skin tests, and proper education and training.
Winston-Salem workplace health laws include regulations set by the North Carolina Occupational Safety and Health Division (NC OSH), an OSHA-approved state plan covering public and private-sector workplaces, and local government employees in Winston-Salem and the state of North Carolina. NC OSH has adopted federal OSHA laws with some exceptions. When federal laws differ from North Carolina laws, employers must comply with state laws. Employers are responsible for familiarizing themselves with federal, state, and local workplace occupational health laws and Winston-Salem occupational health services.

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