The Council for Work and Health supports the recommendations of the report of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Occupational Safety and Health on the occupational medicine workforce crisis.
The Council at its meeting in September 2016 formally set up a Projects Committee chaired by Dr Robin Cordell to explore future research projects that would best make use of the great breadth of knowledge and experience of Council members.
