Occupational Health is concerned with a worker’s health impacts on his or her ability to do their job, and how work and the work environment can affect a worker’s health.

We provide an advisory service and policy input for approximately 42,000 civil servants, prison officers, state industrial employees and defence industrial employees across 55 departments / offices and 14 prisons countrywide. Occupational health services are also provided to selected non-commercial semi-state organisations.

The Office of the Chief Medical Officer (CMO), which incorporates the Civil Service Occupational Health Department (CSOHD), is based in Dublin city centre. Our staff consists of doctors, nurses and administration staff. All doctors are on the Medical Councils Register of Medical Specialists in Occupational Medicine, and all nurses have postgraduate qualifications in occupational health.
