My Occ Health becomes a member of COHPA

March 29 2021

We are on a mission to raise the profile of Occupational Health provision, a service which is still relatively unknown across much of the country – so are delighted to tell you that we are now a member of the Commercial Occupational Health Providers Association (COHPA).

It’s an important move for us as membership of this industry leading body signifies a commitment to advancing the concept and raising awareness of the need for Occupational Health in the workplace.

Education is key

Occupational Health is providing a vital service to firms, helping to keep employees healthy which in turn increases productivity – a win win situation for all concerned but many companies are still unaware of the advantages.

It is estimated that some 80% of businesses across the UK are still failing to provide any or sufficient Occupational Health cover in the workplace despite employers being required by law to protect the health of employees at work. COHPA is working hard to address this situation and we are pleased to become a member. 

Tom Blain, our manager at My Occ Health, said: “We are really pleased to have joined COHPA as it is extremely important to us that the employers and employees we work with know that we are fully committed to offering an efficient service, led by those that we are working with and for.”

What does COHPA do?

Founded in 2004, COHPA is a not-for-profit membership association for Occupational Health and wellbeing providers.

It is a leader in the Occupational Health sector helping hundreds of businesses of all sizes and across all industries and well over 130,000 individuals each year meet their requirements through an Occupational Health provider conforming to the highest standards of practice. This could involve a one-off referral or full Occupational Health service.

The organisation also acts as an information body for employers seeking to access effective Occupational Health.  

It’s mission statement says COHPA is: “The voice of the commercial Occupational Health and wellbeing providers – influencing policy development, sharing knowledge and best practice, and promoting the benefits of Occupational Health and wellbeing services to employees, employers and the health of the UK.”
