What is OHP?
Occupational Health Psychology (OHP) is an interdisciplinary subfield of Industrial-Organizational Psychology that investigates the different factors that impact workers’ mental and physical health. Specifically, OHP is concerned with the work-related factors that lead to injuries, disease and distress in employees. These factors include things such as stress, burnout, engagement, leadership, work-life balance, psychological and physical safety and counterproductive work behaviours (including incivility, bullying and harassment, and workplace violence). OHP also seeks to improve the wellbeing of employees and organizations through the development and promotion of psychologically healthy workplace interventions and initiatives.
