The Occupational Health Advisory Group for the Electricity Industry (OHAG) is an independent body of senior occupational physicians, who meet together three times a year to discuss matters of common interest and to promote good practice in occupational health across the industry.

The remit of the OHAG and its guidance covers all aspect of the industry from generation, through transmission and distribution to retail and supply. Now, for the first time, the group has decided to make these papers more widely available by placing them online, with Energy Networks Association (ENA) hosting the documents on its website.

Dr Ron McCaig of the OHAG said: “The guidance notes will be of interest to managers, employees and occupational health professionals within the industry, and to other occupational health specialists. They cover a number of areas, from night work and working in call centres to the burning of biomass in power generation. OHAG is delighted that with the help of ENA we are now able to make them available to the widest possible audience.”
