Jaime Henderson, RN, BA, COHN,
Safety & Security Coordinator, BDPS
“As an Occupational Health Nurse in a plant with over 800 employees, I find Occupational Health Services to be an invaluable resource. I rely on their expertise and knowledge to assist us with keeping up to date on OSHA required annual hearing tests, respiratory fit tests, as well as many other mandatory state and federal requirements.
Occupational Health Services has also provided new hire physicals and drug testing for our company. Their Physical Capacity Profile (PCP) assessments have provided us with information to ensure we are placing candidates in positions that match their physical abilities thus lowering our OSHA incident rate. I have found their group to be knowledgeable, helpful and reliable.”
Joan Lehr, RN

"Through the years, we have utilized Occupational Health Services for a wide range of services including drug & alcohol testing, post job offer and medical surveillance physicals, respiratory screening and fit testing, flu shots, health fairs, and on site nursing services. Occupational Health Services has partnered with us every step of the way to ensure that we meet all regulations. We have the utmost confidence in their staff; they are thorough and effective at communicating issues in a timely way and quickly resolving anything that may come up. From expert advice and counsel provided by the medical director to the efficient handling of paperwork, I can count on the effort and fast response of the Occupational Health Services team."
Health and Wellness Specialist
Nebraska Public Power District
“Occupational Health Services has provided multiple health services for our employees and family members for several years. We have continually been pleased with the on-site services they provide for flu shots and annual wellness screenings. We also use Occupational Health Services for employee physicals, both post-offer employment physicals as well as occupational specific physicals for our employees who are certified to do asbestos and hazardous materials work. Their staff has always been very accommodating, prompt and professional.”
Platte County District 7 Supervisor
“Platte County researched starting a wellness program for a couple of years. Once we decided to implement, we knew that Occupational Health Services would be the first interview for our lab work. It didn’t take long to realize that Occupational Health Services was well attuned to be able to deliver. When using county tax payers' funds, it’s extremely important that the investment in the wellness program, which we called LEAP, be successful and in the end, offer a return on the county’s investment and our employees' health.
Occupational Health Services worked closely with the LEAP committee and helped with our employees’ informational meeting. They were flexible with each of our unique offices to provide lab time frames that worked best for our employees’ schedules. Occupational Health Services even sat down with each employee, delivering their health report and describing to each employee what they would need to work on to achieve their personal and the county’s goals.
Our LEAP committee had specific needs for our plan to continue reaching our health care insured employees and spouses and Occupational Health Services accomplished each. If you are dedicated to having a successful kickoff and implementation for your wellness plan, I highly recommend partnering with Occupational Health Services.”
Supervisor of Safety & Training
Loup Power District
“For more than 20 years, Loup Power District has partnered with Occupational Health Services to provide numerous services, such as medical injury evaluations, hearing tests, on-site flu shots, tetanus shots, and yearly wellness screenings, just to name a few. Occupational Health Services also provides invaluable DOT services that help keep the company in compliance with DOT rules and regulations. They do all of this while working with the District’s different shift schedules, making it convenient for our employees. Occupational Health Services is always just a phone call away and ready to help answer any questions that may arise. Partnering with Occupational Health Services is like having a full-time nurse at your disposal without the cost.”
