SEQOHS, or Safe Effective Quality Occupational Health Service, is a set of standards and a process of accreditation that aims to help to raise the overall standard of care provided by occupational health services, thus helping to make a meaningful difference to the health of people of working age.

SEQOHS aims to:

  • enable services to identify the standards of practice to which they should aspire 
  • credit good work being done by high quality occupational health services, providing independent validation that they satisfy standards of quality 
  • raise standards where they need to be raised 
  • help purchasers differentiate occupational health services that attain the desired standards from those that do not

The SEQOHS Accreditation Scheme is run and managed by the Faculty of Occupational Medicine. For further information see
