How can occupational health help to shape the future?

Building on the raised awareness of the role of occupational health due to the Covid pandemic, SOM’s mission is to raise the profile and influence of a vibrant occupational health presence in the United Kingdom.  We want to support practitioners who are confident and skilled to take up their role within their organisations and beyond, whether in conversation with workers, managers, other stakeholders or politicians. SOM aims to continue to inspire OH practitioners towards compassionate, authentic, and principle-based leadership (and followership), to develop skills in team building and embracing diversity, to be agents of change with influencing ability, to hone active listening and conflict resolution skills, and to harness new technologies. We hope to help practitioners contribute to cultures of high-quality health input into workplaces.  As Dr Jenny Napier, chair of the SOM Leadership Group says “Leadership skills are relevant, whether or not a clinician has a formal leadership role.  Leadership is about evolving as a practitioner and team-member to contribute ever-more effective high-quality health input into workplaces.” The first 8 Leadership webinars are below (free for members otherwise book via
