Benefits of membership
Because of our geographical and disciplinary diversity, you have access to a network of surprisingly eclectic contacts and become part of a truly wide-ranging professional community.
Membership is equally beneficial to those who spend only a proportion of their time dealing with issues related to occupational health matters, as to those who are specialists. For those with a general interest, it can also be the specialist backbone you need in your own workplace.
For everyone, it provides an informal mechanism to meet and then keep in touch with others in the field and peers from related professions.
Joining us also provides the avenues through which you can more easily contribute to national debate, get your voice heard, and promote the profession. On a more personal level and through the Faculty in particular, we provide the opportunity to widen knowledge, improve skills and demonstrate professional competence.
