We are taking steps to play our part in the government’s message of social distancing and to help manage the spread of Coronavirus in NI/ROI. Occupational Health is of vital importance to you in this business critical time – now more than ever you will have access to the highly specialised and detailed workplace health advice and recommendations an Occupational health professional can provide.

However, we are very much online and ready to support you!
How will we continue to support you in this challenging time?
