As BU’s research programs have grown, so have the needs of the occupational health program for researchers. To respond to the growth, BU has established a comprehensive Research Occupational Health Program (ROHP). This step enhances the health and safety of our researchers which is one of our primary concerns and ensures that occupational health is an integral part of our overall health and safety programs.
The Research Occupational Health Program (ROHP) is part of the Office of Research Compliance serving Boston University and Boston Medical Center and is focused on the health, wellness and safety of the University’s scientific research community. ROHP promotes a culture of safety in research by utilizing comprehensive best practices to perform medical surveillance, workplace risk assessments, biosafety and agent training, and clinical occupational health services led by board certified Occupational Medicine physicians.
