On October 11, Jessica Brown, Manager of Occupational Health, became certified by the National Association of Occupational Health Professionals (NAOHP) in Occupational Health Practice Management.
This certification indicates that Brown has a nationally recognized knowledge base in occupational health standards of practice. The program enhances knowledge and understanding of the benefits of providing occupational health services to employers, the interrelationship of services Mercer Health offers and the regulatory requirements employers face.
The NAOHP is a nationally recognized organization that provides a vehicle for educating, networking, and developing successful occupational health programs. Mercer Health’s continued membership and participation in their programs aims to further develop the occupational health program, which encompasses the health and safety of our employer client’s employees.
