1. Tell us a little bit about your role at Examinetics and how your role contributes to the overall company mission.
I help design all Examinetics testing programs, medical clearance processes and health assessments for individuals and companies. We must ensure that our services not only fully comply with regulatory requirements, but also incorporate the latest technology, scientific advances and best practices. Working with my medical team, we are constantly looking into the future to find new ways to advance holistic occupational health.
2. How does your role contribute to the health and safety of America’s workforce?
American workers are entitled to a safe and healthy workplace. Our programs help ensure that workers are protected. Employers also want highly motivated, energized and productive employees who love their work and are responsible for taking care of their health. Examinetics continues to evolve to meet those needs by incorporating wellness and health services as a core offering.
3. What’s the most rewarding part of your job?
I have the pleasure of communicating with many different Examinetics clients and getting to know their needs. I love collaborating with a large team of dedicated Examinetics professionals, especially in our creative efforts to constantly improve our services. Designing for healthy outcomes has been the most fulfilling part of my career.
4. What do you think is the future of workforce health?
Employers are recognizing the value of going beyond minimal regulatory compliance requirements to incorporate the best of prevention, lifestyle management and wellness. Integrated programs addressing total worker health can help contain health-related costs, lower absenteeism and “presenteeism”, and enhance productivity and wellbeing. Using data, such as the insights from our XM Solutions platform, can help employers understand their needs and develop these systems.
5. Considering your role and different experiences in your work, please share a personal safety and/or health tip that may be relevant for clients.
Embrace change. Too often stress is seen as a boogeyman that saps our energy and threatens health. I disagree and see opportunity in the complex tasks of safety managers. New challenges can keep us young and flexible and bring out the best in each one of us as we adapt to changing environments. What is key is taking a positive attitude towards change, growth and lifelong learning.
