The Value of Occupational Health Research: History, Evolution and Way Forward

Not yet rated

This report is a follow-on from the SOM’s 2017 report Occupational health: the value proposition and its 2018 report Occupational Health: The Global Evidence and Value. Worldwide the costs of work-related health issues are an estimated 4% of global GDP and equivalent to the entire GDP of the UK.

Although a persisting lack of good quality evidence to support the economic value of OH research is identified from the report, it concludes that there is a strong case to support the OH societal and public health value of OH research.
