Occupational health (OH) can appear as a foreign topic to many clinicians but it is something we should all be aware of. OH refers to the relationship between work and health and specialists in this area aim to enhance a worker’s health status, increase the productivity of a workforce, improve business performance and the economy. In OH physiotherapists link health and work not to be confused with vocational rehab which focusses on tasks/goals outside of paid employment.
