About IAOH

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 baptized on 9th July, 1948, with an initial founder membership of 28. At the very first meeting, these three doyens were elected as the first torch¬bearers of the organization. In West Bengal, the association was established and started functioning since 1954 and was named as Indian Association of Occupational Health (Calcutta Branch). more
