Occupational Health Awareness Week

Sunday marks the beginning of Occupational Health Awareness Week (19-24 June 2022)!

Occupational health (OH) maintains and promotes the health and wellbeing of employees by preventing and removing ill-health, as well as developing solutions to keep staff with health issues at work. The work of Occupational Health Professionals is vital in creating safe working conditions for millions of employees across the UK. Moreover, employers who invest in employee health and wellbeing can see many benefits for their organisation such as reduced sickness absence, presenteeism and staff turnover, as well as increased employee’s productivity and engagement.

Throughout Occupational Health Awareness Week the Society of Occupational Medicine and COHPA will be delivering a week of insights and announcements to promote better awareness and understanding of the benefits of occupational health.
