Working together to improve the health of the UK's workforce

Welcome to The Society of Occupational Medicine

The Society of Occupational Medicine is the UK organisation for all doctors working in or with an interest in occupational health. Affiliate membership is also open to other healthcare professionals working in occupational health.

Research shows that working is good for your health and mental well-being – occupational health professionals help people stay in work and live full and healthy lives. They also help employers by reducing sickness absence and increasing productivity.

  • Doctors working in or with an interest in occupational health
  • Occupational Health Practitioners
  • General Practitioners
  • Employers
  • General Public
