OH nurses test new CD-Rom

Occupational health nurses in Sheffield are testing a new CD-Rom designed to
help cut sickness absence.

The CD-Rom has been launched by the Sheffield Occupational Health Advisory
Service (SOHAS).

First Stop for Occupational Safety and Health includes a database of
information to advise workers in a range of occupations about how to avoid
occupational injury.

SOHAS manager, Nick Pearson, said demand for OH services was rising rapidly
even though the nationwide rate of work-related ill health was falling.

"More and more people’s health is being damaged through work – usually
more through ignorance than cost."
