I'm brand new to Occupational Health Nursing. I've been browsing for On-line resources and other OHN's to network with. It doesn't seem like there are very many OHN's that visit these boards. If you're out there, let me know.
I will work on the list and post in a new thread in the next day.
I am in a cooperate position in the manufacturing, distribution and retail business covering many states. My position is located in the HR department and my role is the walking talking health /regulatory encyclopedia (which is why I hide in my office at lunch). Actually if it is a problem with a health slant I am consulted by management. Like many OHN's in my region, I am on the corporate crises responss team. Certain crises I get to handle alone (yippy, skippy do
) like the late night notification of a respiratory outbreak or food borne outbreak, 120 car pile up with our store employees and truck drivers are involved. Direct care is outsource because of geographic spread. But other processes and systems I administer. For example: compliance testing, ID surveillance and control, Federal and State regulatory compliance, disability programs, and identifying future trends in health care and analyst of their impact on the business.
I also periodically offer my services free of charge to small municipal police and fire departments. Which also can tie me up at 3 am.
