Go Home Healthy – The Society of Occupational Medicine


The Society of Occupational Medicine is
the UK organisation for all healthcare professionals working
in or with an interest in occupational health. The benefits of being a member of
the Society of Occupational Medicine is that members are up to date with the
latest evidence via our journal Occupational Medicine and we support
members through training events, peer support and legal advice. And we know
that illness and sickness impairs business performance and has an effect
on the UK economy and the Society of Occupational Medicine produces a report
really looking at the value of occupational health from all the
evidence and found that occupational health specialists really enhance both
employee health but also workforce productivity. Occupational health nurses
add real value to organisations. We promote health, we reduce the chance of
occupationally related ill health and we support the HSE’s priorities of
occupational lung diseases, musculoskeletal disorders, work-related
stress and other mental health issues. We want people to be able to talk to their
employer, their line manager about mental health problems the same way they can
about physical problems and deal with them on an equal footing. The bottom line
is that occupational health benefits employees, employers and the economy. So
the question to you is have you developed your organisation’s plans to
help ensure the health of your employees and the continued success of your
business?
