The Institute of Occupational Medicine ("IOM") is registered in Scotland as a charity and as a company limited by guarantee.
IOM has a wholly owned UK subsidiary company, IOM Consulting Limited, and IOM Consulting Limited in turn wholly owns IOM (Institute of Occupational Medicine) Singapore Pte. Ltd (“IOM Singapore”), a company incorporated in Singapore.
IOM Consulting provides a range of consultancy services to the public and private sector. This work is generally not for publication but is closely aligned with the charitable purpose of the IOM in its range of subject matter and in its independent positioning.
IOM Singapore carries out research, consultancy and service work, similar in nature to the work carried out by IOM and IOM Consulting. However, IOM Singapore does not have charitable status, and therefore the research work carried out by IOM Singapore does not fall within the charitable purpose of the IOM.
We opened an office in Singapore in 2012 with support from the Singapore Economic Development Board and with a purpose to support the drive from the Ministry of Manpower and the Workplace Safety and Health Council to bring additional expertise in workplace health to Singapore. The importance of emerging technologies for many Singaporean companies and our expertise in this field positioned well in this region.
IOM Singapore benefits from an exceptionally well qualified consulting and training team across the range of Occupational Hygiene requirements.
