The past year of pandemic and crisis has been immensely challenging for everyone working within occupational health. Now’s the time to celebrate all the profession has done, and continues to do, for the health and wellbeing of the nation – by entering this year’s Occupational Health & Wellbeing Awards.
From managing spiralling mental ill health through to providing calm leadership on infection control, health surveillance and the rehabilitation ramifications of ‘long Covid’, the Covid-19 pandemic continues to challenge occupational health practitioners.
Yet, if anything, this makes it even more important that we should be recognising the contribution OH makes and continues to make.
Practitioners, quite rightly, have a reputation for just quietly, efficiently and professionally getting on with the job.
At OHW+ and Occupational Health & Wellbeing, however, we want to make a bit of noise about the profession. We want to celebrate the innovation and sheer hard work and expertise of all practitioners.
The Occupational Health & Wellbeing Awards are an opportunity to thank your team for all they have done over the past 12 months and to showcase your work – your excellence – to your peers and the wider workplace health/OH community.
And the awards are now open (as of Monday 19 July). So get entering!
The Occupational Health & Wellbeing Awards will be your chance to validate the great work you know you already do, and to have your team and work profiled on OHW+. You do not need to be an OHW+ member to enter.
Entries are now open. But don’t delay – as the closing date for submissions is Friday 17 September.
