Community Services

Protecting the health of area workers and managing healthcare services for employers in Guttenberg and surrounding communities is the mission of GMH Community Services. We offer businesses a comprehensive program to improve the health and safety of their employees.

Compliance and Prevention

Meeting regulatory requirements is a full-time job. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Department of Transportation (DOT) and numerous other agencies require employee training and testing, medical evaluation, and documentation of compliance. GMH Community Services can help you meet government mandates.

Injury Prevention and Training

GMH Community Services helps prevent injuries through education and training on back safety, blood-borne pathogens, and many other topics. We also provide CPR and First Aid certification and re-certification training for employees of area businesses.

Injury Treatment and Management

If a worker is injured, GMH will promptly care for your employee. Treatment and management of employee injuries is provided locally by Cornerstone Family Practice.  If an employee is injured after hours, services are available 24/7 through the GMH Emergency Department. We work closely with the medical staff to give you follow-up communication on treatment administered and the employee’s return-to-work status.

Job Site Analysis

Through onsite ergonomics and job assessments, we work with employers and employees to make the job safer, reduce workplace injuries and help injured employees return to work safely and quickly.

Drug and Alcohol Testing

Our comprehensive drug and alcohol testing allows your organization to remain confident that your employees are maintaining the professionalism and safety needed to carry out their job responsibilities. Tests are performed through the GMH Laboratory on a 24 hour basis and meet a variety of needs, including DOT requirements. Results are usually provided to you within 24 to 48 hours.

Tests include:

  • Pre-employment screening
  • Random testing
