EPROH scientific committee (emergency preparedness and response in occupational health) was created at the ICOH Congress in 2015. It aims at establishing a network for occupational practitioners interested in developing research, teaching, training and practicing in emergency response in workplaces.
Why EPROH ? A close cooperation between emergency and occupational specialists will help improving emergency care in workplaces and reducing the gap between knowledge and action. A position statement paper on emergency preparedness and response in occupational health has been published so far (Download position statement here).
