Working Group to develop an Australian and New Zealand Occupational Health Value Proposition
For sometime ANZSOM (Australia) General Council and Executive have supported the concept of an Occupational Health Value Proposition similar to the UK’s SOM report that was developed in May 2017. That report provides a comprehensive analysis together with an evidence review of the value of occupational health in the UK. Click here to download the SOM report
ANZSOM has now engaged with the Australasian Faculty of Occupational and Environmental Medicine to develop a local Occupational Health Value Proposition or statement to support communication about the benefits of occupational health to stakeholders such as governments, companies, managers, HSE professionals’ other medical professionals and disciplines, and workers.
Members of the working group include:
Dr Mary Obele (New Zealand), Occupational Physician
Associate Professor Euan Thompson, Consultant Occupational Physician (Western Australia)
Dr Azhar Khan, Occupational Physician (New South Wales)
Dr Harry Chow, AFOEM Advanced Trainee (Victoria)
The project aims to have a draft report to General Council by November. If you are interested in participating please contact the secretariat.
