Job Description for Occupational Health Nurse

Many professions carry a certain level of risk to the health or safety of employees. Because of legal requirements and to ensure optimal productivity, employers must take steps to minimize risk to employees and have a system to assist employees in case of an incident. Occupational health nurses are registered nurses that help maintain the health and safety of their organization's workforce through several main methods.
