Occupational Health Advisory Group
The Occupational Health Advisory Group (OHAG) promotes collaboration between occupational health professionals and the industry on occupational health and wellbeing issues relating to medical fitness for work standards. The group focusses on both reducing risks to health from work and on the wider effects of health on work.
OHAG will provide leadership and support to industry in response to emerging issues and critical incidents. However, OHAG will not perform a case management role or provide clinical, professional or management advice to duty-holders, employers or other industry bodies or groups relating to or in response to individual incidents or accidents.
OHAG’s objectives are to:
- Communicate evidence based occupational health (OH) resources
- Support development of OH training for practitioners
- Support commissioning of OH services
- Support with compliance through an audit framework
If you have any questions or wish to contact the group, please email: Health&Wellbeing@rssb.co.uk.
You can download a range resources from our occupational health topic hub.
