About SEQOHS

The background to SEQOHS


Launched in 2010, SEQOHS sets the standards for occupational health services to deliver a Safe Effective Quality Occupational Health Service and receive accreditation.


Today, the SEQOHS accreditation scheme is an integral part of the occupational health service landscape and the recognised industry standard.


The SEQOHS standards were inspired by Dame Carol Black's review of the health of Britain's working-age population, 'Working for a healthier tomorrow' (published in March 2008). The review advocated clear standards of practice and formal accreditation of all providers who support people of working age.


The Faculty of Occupational Medicine (FOM) led the development of the standards and accreditation process. We oversee the standards and have revised them every few years to incorporate legislative changes, latest ethical considerations and best-practice. The latest review saw updated standards take effect in November 2023.
