What Is SEQOHS?
SEQOHS, which stands for Safe, Effective, Quality, Occupational Health Service, is an accreditation led by the Faculty of Occupational Medicine (FOM) that marks a company’s ability to provide occupational health services that meet its standards. Originally launched in 2010, these standards have since been reviewed and relaunched in 2015. Since then, the SEQOHS accreditation has become an integral part of the occupational health landscape and is widely recognised by all.
About The Faculty Of Occupational Medicine
In 2009, the FOM created the SEQOHS standards to create a benchmark standard of occupational health service that can be followed by providers across the UK. This has since allowed for safe regulation of occupational health, allowing those seeking these services to know where to put their trust.
The FOM, also known as the Faculty of Occupational Medicine, is a charity committed to improving health at work. As the professional body for occupational medicine in the UK, the FOM aims to ensure the highest standards in the practice of occupational health nationwide. This works to improve the health of the working age population within the UK.
How Does A Company Become SEQOHS Accredited?
A company can become SEQOHS certified by following their accreditation pathway as stated on the SEQOHS website. The process involves a range of self-assessment and external peer assessment methods that mark your ability against their standards.
After the assessment stage is finished and you have either been deferred or accredited, your certification is valid for five years, subject to annual renewal. This annual renewal ensures that you are compliant with the standards for the full duration of your accreditation.
After the fourth annual renewal is complete, you will be due to undertake the entire accreditation pathway from the beginning in order to become reaccredited.
