N.A.O.H.P Certified


The National Association of Occupational Health Professionals (N.A.O.H.P.) was established in June 1990 to provide a vehicle for the exchange of information associated with the effective administration of provider-based occupational health programs. In 2002, N.A.O.H.P. developed a plan to establish occupational health standards of practice and gain recognition for professionals in the field of occupational health. One of the phases of this effort was to develop and offer a Site Certification process as a way for occupational health programs and freestanding occupational medicine practices to evaluate their performance in comparison to established national standards.

The primary objectives of Occupational Health Program Certification are:

1. To provide applicant programs with benchmarks to ensure that their program’s policies and standards are consistent with best national practices. Standards and core competencies are established in the following content areas:

  • Administration and Organization 
  • Operational Framework 
  • Staffing Resources 
  • Clinical Services 
  • Quality Management  

2. To identify deficient areas in which an applicant program might improve in order to achieve optimal performance in comparison to national standards.

We are pleased to announce the review of Sanford OccMed received a perfect score from the NAOHP. This certification is achieved from May, 2016 to April, 2019.
