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.

Work-related stress is the harmful physical or psychological reaction that occurs when people are subject to excessive work demands or expectations.
Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are conditions that affect the nerves, tendons, muscles and supporting structures, such as the discs in your back. They result from one or more of these tissues having to work harder than they're designed to.
Occupational cancer is a cancer that is caused wholly or partly by exposure to a cancer causing agent (carcinogen) at work, or by a particular set of circumstances at work.
An occupational skin disorder is a skin condition wholly or partially caused or made worse by a person's work activity, such as exposure to or coming into contact with substances such as chemicals.
Inhalation disorders are dysfunctions associated with the breathing in of a substance which can be in the form of a dust, fume, mist, gas or vapour.
This section of the OH toolkit brings together information, guidance, factsheets, case studies, training materials, presentations and more to help you tackle non-work related occupational health issues.
