About An Occupational Medicine Specialist

by techne

Pulmonology, toxicology, radiation exposure, and many other hazards of the workplace are just some of the main areas of focus of an occupational medicine specialist. For individuals who live in or near Alabama and are suffering from workplace injuries or disabilities and diseases, they should consult an occupational medicine specialist in Alabama for the best diagnostic and treatment results.

Workplace Hazards

There are many different hazardous conditions in a lot of workplaces that would require the services of an occupational medicine specialist. Some workers breathe in asbestos or other harmful dust and fumes. Others ingest the odors of coal and various other toxic chemicals in the plants and factories that they work in. Even with wearing protective masks and special protective uniforms, exposure to these noxious and often poisonous substances still occur. Radiation exposure is one of the biggest hazards that they have to deal with when treating such an infected patient. This problem can occur in nuclear plants when there is a leak or an accident and radioactivity reaches an enormously high level. This special type of healthcare practitioner must known how to most appropriately deal with these serious medical issues.

Treatment Procedures

Many times, patients come in to see this type of physician because they have great difficulty breathing. In this case, the doctor will often prescribe certain inhalers as well as oxygen tanks that the patient has to utilize 24 hours a day. For some radiation poisoning or toxic effects, simply administering an iodine pill will help prevent thyroid cancer. The doctor has to draw extensive blood samples and send them to the laboratory to study the biochemistry, bacteriology, parasitology and toxicology levels of each individual’s blood sample in order to make the most accurate medical diagnosis and treatment protocol possible. It’s not often an easy process of simply eliminating one workplace-induced disease from another.

Extensive workups are always required to be performed in the office. Sometimes people who come to see this specialist will have to be injected with certain fluids to overcome the internal trauma inflicted by workplace accidents, while other times this type of healthcare practitioner will have to physically stitch up workplace inflicted wounds and deep cuts from on the job machinery after an accident has occurred. He has to know how to perform a wide variety of diagnostic and treatment procedures to successfully treat the individuals who come into his office. But he’s a very well trained physician who has had years of extensive experience behind him, so people can feel safe in his hands and definitely trust him that he knows exactly what he’s doing to help them.

EBS Security Inc. Becomes a Certified 8(a) Program Member Thanks to US Federal Contractor Registration and Acquisition Specialist Peter Lanore

Washington D.C. (PRWEB) November 26, 2014

US Federal Contractor Registration is proud to announce that Verified Vendor EBS Security Inc. has been approved as a certified 8(a) Program participant as of October 2014. After waiting a couple months for the Small Business Administration (SBA) to process the paperwork. EBS Security Inc. was finally officially approved as a member of the 8(a) Business Program thanks to US Federal Contractor Registration and the registration assistance of Director of Case Management Jessica Summers. EBS Security Inc. is forecasted to be dominant 8(a) Federal Contractor competing for contracts in Armed and Unarmed Security, Body Guard Services, and Private Investigation Services.

Prior to the actual registration process, EBS Security Inc spoke with Acquisition Specialist Peter Lanore and conducted a Federal Marketplace Evaluation. One of the many stages of the Federal Marketplace Evaluation is discovering if a business qualifies for any federal set-aside programs. After discussing their options at full length, Peter soon discovered that EBS Security Inc would make a great candidate for the 8(a) Business Program. After assessing their business model, it was determined EBS Security Inc. would have a great chance at becoming approved for the 8(a) Program. Peter reviewed EBS Security Inc’s federal profile as a small, socially and economically disadvantaged business and came to the conclusion that the 8(a) Program would increase their chances at winning government contracts in the federal marketplace.

Benefits of the 8a Program

The 8(a) Business Development Program was created to help small disadvantaged businesses win federal government contracts. A business must be socially and economically disadvantaged in order to apply for this particular federal set-aside program. The 8(a) Program lasts for 9 years once a business has been certified, during which they are able to compete for eligible set-aside contracting opportunities. The benefits of the 8(a) Program are sole source selected contracts that have a contract ceiling of $ 6.5 million for manufacturing and $ 4 million for regular goods and services. Being a part of the 8(a) Program allows businesses to team up with other 8(a) participating businesses to work on larger prime contracts and awards that would normally be above the ceiling limit of normal 8(a) contracts.
