Occupational health nurses are employed by companies looking to improve the health and safety of their workforce. Their duties range from policy implementation to providing direct care.
Most occupational health nurse jobs involve assessing the work place. Occupational health nurses are responsible for identifying illness and injury hazards in a work environment and implementing preventative measures to avoid them. This helps occupational health nurses to develop comprehensive health safety programs for a specific work environment.
Additionally, company workers often have direct access to the occupational health nurse. Nurses may treat illnesses and injuries, refer workers to a physician or specialist and provide counseling for work related stress and injuries. Occupational health nurses provide education to workers to prevent future health problems, including smoking cessation, nutrition and stress management programs.
Many occupational health nurse jobs are Monday through Friday daylight positions, making them highly coveted among the nursing field. To qualify, candidates should be an RN and obtain the Certification for Occupational Health Nurses.
