Occupational Health Services

Your business, your unique health concerns

Many employers find the public health care system is not equipped to handle their evolving workplace health concerns. Waits can be long, and many family doctors aren’t trained to assess if an employee is fit to work.

Providing Quality Health Assessments for over 30 years

Our occupational health assessment programs were developed under the guidance and expertise of a physician with more than 30 years’ experience in the field. We designed our services to be customized to your needs. We pride ourselves on minimizing wait times and providing services that comply with applicable occupational health and safety regulations. In many locations, an employee can book an appointment and complete all tests that same day with one visit.
