Regardless of the size of the company, occupational health is a mandatory field of medicine for maintaining business compliance. For many years, occupational medicine was seen exclusively in this way, as something that had to be followed to avoid setbacks and fines. However, currently, when employees seek balance between personal and professional areas, in addition to better health and quality of life, it is necessary to change the perspective and understand that occupational medicine can (and should) have an action much closer to management practices. of health.

This mentality is especially important when looking at data: in 2023, herniated disc and low back pain led the ranking of the main complaints and causes of sick leave due to illnesses that generated temporary disability, according to the Ministry of Social Security. In other words, these are departures that could have been avoided.

Given this, investing in solutions that make occupational health an ally of preventative medicine seems to be the answer both to combating the increase in statistics and to creating a different perception regarding the value of the brand.

“Care Plus Ocupacional deserves to be highlighted for presenting such characteristics and also innovating in services, with the example of ErgoDigital, a solution that offers risk mapping in any work environment – ​​including the home office. In addition, it also offers scheduling with a digital experience, with bilingual service and via Concierge, strictly following global health requirements.” Amanda Bittencourt, Business Manager at Care Plus Ocupacional.

In this sense, it is worth remembering that not all companies in the occupational health niche are capable of offering welcoming services, mapping of lifestyle habits, detection of pre-existing diseases, ergonomics in the workplace and disease prevention. These practices demonstrate that Care Plus Ocupacional is attentive to the multifactorial causes that can put individuals’ health at risk and is able to offer experiences that improve people’s relationship with their own health, encouraging them to be protagonists of their care. The company also shows that the change in behavior takes occupational medicine to a level far beyond that which, previously, was more restricted to admission and dismissal exams and compliance with regulatory standards.

This, however, does not mean that attention to these fields should be left aside. Proof of this is that Care Plus Ocupacional has a specialized technical team of professionals and advisors in the regulatory area to guarantee an advisory role to its clients in everything related to legislation. The operator also highlights the attraction and retention of talent and the strengthening of the employer brand as high points of a company that invests in occupational health. For Care Plus Ocupacional, the maxim that “well-groomed employees reflect on the company’s success” is valid.
