Our OH toolkit

The OH toolkit is a free resource. It brings together information, guidance, factsheets, case studies, training materials, presentations and more to help you tackle occupational health problems.

You can use the OH toolkit to support what you do over the whole process – from learning the background to a health issue, through identifying and dealing with early symptoms, right to getting people back to work if they’ve been off ill. The OH toolkit also gives guidance on working with your colleagues in occupational health specialisms.

Which topics can the toolkit help me with?

Stress | Musculoskeletal | Occupational cancer | Skin disorders | Inhalation | Non-work related conditions
