The SIFP Program in Occupational Medicine seeks to promote the quality of knowledge and competency of Canadian family physicians in the area of occupational health. Occupational health concerns itself with the anticipation, recognition and control of hazards to the health of working people; preventing worked-induced diseases and injuries; promotion of the overall health in the workforce; and enhanced productivity of the Canadian workforce.
