The SOM Occupational Health Awards are a celebration of the superb work that occupational health professionals undertake every day. The awards showcase occupational health, demonstrating the value of occupational health to organisations and the wider community and discovering and sharing the innovative and important work that is being done at both an individual and organisational level.
The awards look at innovative leadership e.g. influencing Boards for real health and business benefit; collaborative work – delivering and influencing as part of a multidisciplinary team; driving best practice and overcoming barriers beyond the traditional occupational health service model, and innovation e.g. on risk management and contribution to prevention.
Dr Laran Chetty was the recipient of the 2020 Outstanding Occupational Health Practitioner.
“The award was a genuine surprise but I am happy to receive it because it showcased the value of occupational health physiotherapy during the pandemic.”
Dr Chetty is an executive committee member of the Association of Chartered Physiotherapist in Occupational Health and Ergonomics (ACPOHE) serving as the Equality and Diversity Officer and E-news Editor. He is also a member of the CSP’s Diversity Network.
