We help you reduce workplace injuries

WorkSTEPS, offered exclusively in this area through Freeman OccuMed, provides reliable, medically and legally defensible employment testing and effectively reduces workplace injuries and subsequent costs. Available nationwide with a database of more than one million individuals tested, WorkSTEPS provides post-offer, fit-for-duty, and return-to-work programs.
