Recognizing Occupational Health Professionals
Each year, AOHP dedicates a week in April to recognize the important contributions of occupational health professional. Not only do occupational health professionals take responsibility for employee care, but they have a responsibility to advocate for organizational policies that help to recognize occupational hazards and advocate for new and safe technologies. AOHP raises awareness of these imperative contributions each spring.
Occupational Health Nursing Week is April 17-23, 2017
North American Occupational Safety & Health Week is May 7-13
