For non-work-related injury and illness, Advocate offers a Disability Management program. Our Disability Council works with the employee and physician to facilitate a safe return to work. We conduct medical reviews, determine appropriate time off, maintain contact with all care providers and provide restricted duty modification and Americans with Disabilities Act consultation services.
Advocate Occupational Health specialists monitor changes in the Department of Transportation regulations, so we can advise you of the latest regulations and recommend necessary changes. Our DOT program can provide the basics, such as DOT physicals, NIDA/SAMSHA drug screening and breath alcohol screening. We also can fully manage your random drug and alcohol screening process. Our driver consortium is a cost-effective service that offers random selections, drug and alcohol testing and complete record keeping.
Executive physicals are an excellent benefit to provide to your employees. Advocate's program offers comprehensive medical screenings, diagnostic testing and consultations - all in a comfortable and time-efficient setting.
