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.

Occupational Health Nursing Week is April 9-15, 2018
North American Occupational Safety & Health Week is May 6-12, 2018

Celebrate National Occupational Health Providers’ Recognition Weeks

As a benefit of membership, each year you receive an updated AOHP calendar to acknowledge your role in caring for healthcare workers and to demonstrate the various roles for which you have responsibility. This year, the AOHP Executive Board decided to develop a poster to showcase your work, the tasks you perform day-to-day, and special initiatives you champion to protect the healthcare workers in your facility. AOHP's goals in producing this poster are to recognize your efforts and to make your organizational leadership and other staff aware of the good work performed by occupational health professionals to keep healthcare workers healthy.


We need your help to accomplish this goal. Please send photos of you or your co-workers performing vital daily tasks. Submit quality photos (high resolution jpg or tif files with a minimum 300 dpi) to AOHP Headquarters by March 2, 2018.


For each individual photo, the member who submitted it will be entered into a drawing. Four winners will each be awarded $25. A committee will select the photos to be featured in the annual Occupational Health Poster that will be distributed to all members. Please submit your photos to, and be sure to include a caption.  

2018 North American Occupational Safety and Health Week to be Celebrated May 6-12

Again, this year, AOHP will celebrate by offering members a letter that can be shared with your organization’s management, as well as the AOHP Occupational Health Week poster. Watch for details! You can also visit the North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Week web page at for ideas on how to celebrate, and you can post your events related to the weeklong celebration on the NAOSH website.
