Recognizing Occupational Health Professionals
Each year, AOHP dedicates 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.
