  • The SOM is the professional organisation for individuals with an interest in health and work. SOM acts as a national and international voice for occupational health, engaging with employers and government across the UK and globally to increase awareness of the role of occupational health. Our Patrons are Lord Blunkett, Dame Carol Black and Sir Norman Lamb.

    Membership is for anyone working, or with a professional interest, in occupational health. Members are multidisciplinary, and include doctors, nurses, allied health professionals, technicians, and psychologists. A SOM member is also a member of one of our 10 regional groups, enabling local networking with colleagues.

    Our membership booklet outlines the benefits of joining the SOM. Members receive our peer reviewed scientific journal Occupational Medicine, an invaluable resource. They also benefit from career development opportunities, with information about the latest OH Jobs and Events. SOM members receive regular, practical, support and guidance, including a free legal helpline, a monthly e news, peer support, access to special interest groups, a quality assured appraisal scheme to support GMC re-validation, and indemnity cover for OH nurses and OH doctors.



    “The SOM has been invaluable in helping me develop my occupational health practice and skills. It’s my first source of information on relevant courses and new opportunities. The webinars in particular have been a useful resource for my daily practice and as evidence of CPD for my appraisal” - Dr Charles Miranda, Occupational Health Advisor
