While you are providing on-the-job health care services for your company, OOHNA is on the job providing professional support for YOU. Since 1971, OOHNA has been the professional organization for registered nurses who provide occupational health care for Ontario’s workers. We began as an affiliation of local groups of occupational health nurses, and in 1973 we formally incorporated as a not-for-profit organization.  Today, we proudly represent the vast majority of registered nurses who work in the occupational health field in Ontario.

Making Positive Changes | providing professional support for YOU

From the beginning in 1971, OOHNA has been run entirely by and for the people it serves. We advocate for occupational health and safety and promote excellence in OHS nursing practice. OOHNA is the voice of Occupational Health Nursing in Ontario!

OOHNA is making positive changes to meet your evolving needs!
