April is National Occupational Health Professionals’ Recognition Month
Every April, AOHP celebrates National Occupational Health Professionals’ Recognition Month, dedicating a month to recognize the invaluable contributions of occupational health nurses and professionals. These professionals not only take responsibility for employee care, but also advocate for organizational policies that recognize occupational hazards and advocate for new and safe technologies. This year, AOHP is offering our members a FREE infographic poster to represent the varied tasks of the occupational health professionals who work tirelessly every day.
Our world has changed, and a new priority in our evolving role as occupational health professionals includes managing this change for the benefit of all healthcare personnel and the patients they serve. In these unprecedented times, we recognize the burden of this heightened level of responsibility for your work.
As we embark on our third year of occupational health under the complexities of COVID-19, AOHP is proud to celebrate the accomplishments of members like you! AOHP members should have received a card from us to thank for your unwavering commitment to the health, safety, and well-being of healthcare personnel, and for the value of your contributions to the ongoing advancement of occupational health practice. We thank you for all the hard work you do!
As you continue to do what you do best - take care of others - know that AOHP cares about you. Please take some time for yourself each day. Proper self-care means we don't just survive; we thrive!
Thank you for making a difference in so many lives!
