In this free webinar on CIEHF on Wednesday 25th October at 17:00, occupational physician Paul Nicholson summarises the findings of a recent report to illustrate the benefits occupational health services (OHS) provide to employees, employers and the economy.
Over his career Paul has worked with the RAF, ICI and as Associate Medical Director Global Medical Operations at Procter & Gamble. He was assistant editor of ‘Occupational Medicine’, President of the Society of Occupational Medicine, Chair of two BOHRF research groups, and Chair of the BMA Occupational Medicine Committee, being awarded an OBE for services to occupational medicine in 2006.
Paul will discuss the problems with economic evaluation studies and lack of access by workers to OHS, a situation likely to worsen unless value is communicated, and provide an overview of the best evidence in health and safety, ergonomics and health promotion.
You will learn how OHS can add most value, and when to consider suggesting referral to, or involvement of, OHS in managing a case or complex workplace issue. You will gain an understanding of the broad business case not limited to ‘cost-benefit’ and the elements of a value proposition, which may help to market your own expertise.
