SOM Webinars

As part of SOM’s education and training offer to its members, SOM hosts webinars through the year on topics of interest with subject experts to occupational health professionals. SOM webinars are web based, using the internet to connect individuals hosting the webinar to an audience of viewers and listeners from all over the world. Hosts can show slides and even invite guests from other locations to co-host the webinar with them. The SOM webinar platform offers interactive features that the audience can use to chat with the host - normally there is a Q&A session at the end to answer viewers' questions about the content from the presentation. 

OH professionals from the UK and around the world are welcome to join.

The webinars are free to full members and £25 to non-members.
