Introduction UOEH / Objectives

We keep a close eye on worker's health and

environment from a medical perspective.


How Occupational Medicine and Occupational Healthcare are related to

humanity, the public and the environment.


  The University of Occupational and Environmental Health, Japan, as an educational institution for the training of qualified occupational physicians and the promotion of occupational health, was established in 1978 under the enactment of the Industrial Safety and Health Act in 1972 for the securement of occupational physicians experienced in occupational health management. By this act, every company over a certain scale is obliged to appoint a physician for managing the healthcare of its workers.
  The purpose for which the university was established is twofold. One is to provide education and to conduct research related to medical science, nursing science and other healthcare sciences, on the basis of the Fundamental Act of Education and School Education Act. The other is to contribute to the promotion of the medical, nursing and healthcare sciences that are relevant to the working environment and workers’ health, and to develop medical professionals in these fields.
  Based on the education, research and medical examinations relating to general medicine, our university promotes education and research that especially pertains to occupational medicine and occupational healthcare, and produces many excellent occupational health physicians and related healthcare professionals in society. At the same time, we advance research in related fields and assume a central role in the healthcare of the local people.
  With the development of technological innovation, information technology and globalization in modern society, employment formats have become diversified, and working conditions and environments are experiencing dramatic changes. In such situations, “managing worker’s health as the lifeblood of the social infrastructure” is becoming more important than ever. As a result, our university is expected to play a markedly increasing leadership role.
