EPICOH is the Scientific Committee on Epidemiology in Occupational Health of the International Commission on Occupational Health (ICOH). It has as its main function promotion of communication among epidemiologists, industrial hygienists, occupational health physicians, and other occupational health scientists worldwide. EPICOH provides a variety of forums for discussions, critical reviews, collaboration and education on issues of occupational exposures and their human health effects. http://www.epicoh.org/index.htm (PS. Don't miss the stunning visual on this web page).
The Medichem Board acts as the Scientific Committee on Occupational Health in the Chemical Industry of ICOH. While all Medichem Board members therefore also have to be ICOH members in good standing, this is not mandatory for other Medichem members. The Medichem Board, however, strongly encourages every Medichem member to also join ICOH and thus participate in the fostering of scientific progress, knowledge and development of occupational health and safety in all its aspects. http://www.medichem.org/.
