Our Approach

Independence, Integrity and Authority

IOM is an internationally recognised authority on workplace health. Our research work has been instrumental in framing government policy and guidance in many areas of workplace and environmental health. Because we are independent and impartial, our published findings are accepted across all stakeholder groups, from management to employee representatives as well as regulatory agencies.

Our consultancy work is geared towards objective, independent assessments of workplaces and benefit-led recommendations, whether derived from desk-based consulting or from the review of site-based measurement and analysis. Our consultants are able to identify areas of poor practice which may need attention, and provide clear recommendations for improvement. Our methodology, reporting and recommendations are precise, to the point and practicable.

Breadth and Depth of Workplace Health Expertise

Our approach is ultimately built around real business benefit. IOM brings an international perspective to support the drive towards improved workplace health risk management. Our experts work with industry and government to share knowledge, improve conditions and minimise health risks in current and emerging work environments. Each year, our medical, scientific and technical teams work for thousands of commercial organisations and public bodies to support their need for better management of health risks.

Almost Fifty Years of Expertise

Our clients benefit from some of the foremost experts in their fields who deliver true value for money, whether the requirement is for a research investigation, a state-of-knowledge review, advice on policy development, workplace surveys, laboratory analysis, assistance in achieving regulatory compliance, or one of many other IOM services.
