The OMSOC values support our belief that well being can be achieved by:
Effective prevention programs supported by employers and employees will mitigate the potential adverse health impacts of illness and injury.
Working with other physicians and community stakeholders (labour, employers, government, compensation boards and the insurance sector) to maximize the contribution that occupational medicine can make to worker well-being.
Understanding the determinants of health in the workplace and evidence-based best practices in occupational medicine.
Removing barriers to work for those with impairment, to provide a safe, supportive, and dignified work environment.
Responding to workplace issues in a manner that is independent of the organization or individual requesting the response.
Workplaces where the health and safety of employees are continually improved through the specialty practice of occupational medicine.
The mission of the Occupational Medicine Specialists of Canada is to promote and enhance the specialty practice of occupational medicine in Canada, a specialty recognized by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, to promote and support continuing professional development for specialists through the accreditation of continuing medical education activities, and to act as the Canadian voice for that specialty.
