I am the module lead on the CM3604-CM5602 module - Managing Professional Perspectives in Specialist Community Public Health Nursing (SCPHN): Occupational Health (OH) pathway.
I am passionate about work and health. Evidence shows that being employed reduces health inequalities and hence, a person’s health and wellbeing is improved, although work has to be good; taking into consideration functionality. However, unsafe working conditions can cause ill health and disability and improvements in health and safety can help manage unhealth working conditions.
Support from OH enables keeping people well at work physically and mentally by considering all aspects of health and safety within the workplace, focusing on primary prevention of hazards.
Our students are in placement and also in work across most business sectors including the NHS, transport (air, road and rail), telecommunications, construction, education and energy demonstrating the importance of OH support for people at work.
