International Occupational Medicine Society Collaborative (IOMSC)

The International Occupational Medicine Society Collaborative (IOMSC) was formed in 2013 by ACOEM and the United Kingdom's Society of Occupational Medicine (SOM). It is designed to build stronger relationships between medical societies around the world that represent the physicians and other health professionals who promote the health of workers. The IOMSC provides an ongoing assembly to promote best practices in occupational medicine and greater awareness of issues and solutions for better worker health worldwide.

Its active participants are delegates appointed by occupational medical organizations around the world and has steadily grown from 18 societies to 45 societies.

In 2015, IOMSC conducted a survey of its members to help quantify the reach of IOMSC globally and to identify common modes of occupational medicine practice and key changes that are occurring in the workplace.
