Orland Park invited to occupational health care event
The Chicago Southland Chamber will host an informational session and interactive training for community members on occupational health presented by Advocate Health Care on Sept. 20, according to a press release.
Poor health and its effects, including productivity losses related to health problems, cost U.S. employers $1,685 per employee each year, or $225.8 billion annually, according to the release.
A solid approach to wellness includes employees and business owners adopting a variety of habits for physical, mental, social and spiritual health, which is where a good occupational health program comes in with a variety of services, including injury care, wellness services and pre-employment screenings, the release said.
Tickets for the Orland Park event, which will run from 3 to 4:30 p.m., are $15 for chamber members and $20 for non-members.
