    OSHA has released the anticipated Emergency Temporary Standard to deal with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic surge. Dr. Blanchard will review the details of this new standard and what it means for employers. He will outline how Sanford OccMed can help employers meet this new standard and protect employees from COVID-19. He will be taking questions from our members regarding the OSHA ETS.


    Dr. Joel Blanchard specializes in occupational medicine. Some of the services he provides include treatment for work related injuries, company-based physicals, DOT exams, surveillance exams, and pre-employment exams. Dr. Blanchard states his idea of care is, “I strive to provide guidance to industry to prevent injuries, and to provide care to injured workers so they can return to the work force.”

    Dr. Blanchard also serves as the Enterprise Executive Medical Director for Sanford Health Occupational Medicine Clinics. He was recognized as Sanford Health Bismarck’s Innovator Physician of the year (2017).

    Dr. Blanchard graduated from the University of Saskatchewan College of Medicine. He is married and has three children, who are also physicians. In his spare time, he enjoys making wine, running, gardening and traveling.
