About AEOHD

 

It was in the steel city of Jamshedpur, in the year 1948, that three visionaries of industrial medicine as it was known then, nurtured an idea of establishing a National Scientific Forum where problems related to Industrial Medicine could be discussed. The visionaries were Lt. J.R.Kochar, Col. Najib Khan and Maj. R.C.Tarapore. It was through their relentless efforts that the Society for the Study of Industrial Medicine (SSIM) India was ceremonially inaugurated on 9th July 1948, with an initial founder membership of 28. At the very first meeting, these three doyens were elected as the first torchbearers of the organization.

 

The society, not been aimed as an exclusive origination of physicians working in industry, including safety engineers, personnel and welfare officers, occupational nurses and ESIS panel doctors. As a matter of fact, it was meant for all persons connected with promotion and maintenance of health and safety of workers engaged in all types of industries, railways, armed forces and other government and public departments. Further, the industrial establishments were also invited to be institutional members.

The society since then has grown steadily in stature and strength. From a mere figure of 28 to start with, our membership is now around 3000. This has been achieved by establishing branches all over the country. We have branches at Ahmedabad, Andhra Pradesh, Ankleshwar, Delhi, Dhanbad, Duliajan, Goa, Haryana, Jamnagar, Jamshedpur, Karnataka,Madhya Pradesh, Mumbai, Orissa, Pune, Surat, Tamil Nadu, Thane- Raigad, Vadodara, Vidharbha, Vapi-Silvassa and West Bengal. With a view to enlarging the scope of activities and in conformity with the modern trend, the name of the society underwent a change in 1970, to its present name - Indian Association of Occupational Health (IAOH).
