Special interest groups

As part of membership with the SOM, members are eligible to join one of our Special Interest Groups (SIGs). They aim to tackle some of the most pressing issues facing occupational health today.

SIGs give SOM members an opportunity to explore areas of interest that are not necessarily covered through training, as well as agree best practice. They enable members from across the UK and globally to network with other occupational health professionals working in their field and provide SOM with an invaluable source of expertise and support across our work. 

SIGs are currently focusing on Musculoskeletal; Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome; Skin; Mental Health; Travel Medicine; OH Technicians; Marketing; IT; Wellbeing and GP issues. A drug and alcohol group is to be formed.

Further information about activity and outputs of the Groups are available in the member area of the SOM website.
