Occupational Health Awareness Week 23rd-29th September 2024

The aim of Occupational Health Awareness Week 2023 is to provide information to small and medium-sized enterprises about the role and value of occupational health. We also aim to promote occupational health as a career – for information about our 2023 Careers Fair taking place on Wednesday 27th September online and in person in London, contact

The focus of this year’s Occupational Health Awareness Week is explaining what occupational health is and the value it provides to workplace health. Resources will be produced and links made with new Journal of Occupational Medicine articles and marketing leads in OH companies to amplify the week. A careers fair is to be held on 25th September for doctors and nurses.

Last year, the week provided resources to engage small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), who are five times less likely to have occupational health support than large businesses. SOM produced a 15-minute and 2-minute film to introduce OH to SMEs – these films are still available here. COHPA published a Guide to OH for SMEs, which is also still available on our SME page. These free resources are available to use, distribute and share, to promote on social media or to clients. You can read a roundup of last year’s activities here.
