The Occupational Medicine Specialists of Canada (OMSOC) seeks a logo with which to brand itself. The logo will appear on the organization's website, and potentially on business cards, too. OMSOC is a Canadian organization of physicans specializing in the practice of occupational medicine. OMSOC is redeveloping its website, a mockup of which is here: http://omsoc.cloudaccess.net/.
By way of background, occupational medicine is the branch of medicine that deals broadly with the relationship between work and health, in particular how a person's health affects his/her ability to work, and how a person's work can impact his/her health. Occupational medicine specialists are therefore familiar with the health effects, positive and negative, of various workplace exposures, and they have expertise in assisting people with a range of health problems, physical and mental, in remaining productive at work. OMSOC's members advise industry, work in the public sector, and teach and conduct research at universities across Canada.
In a recent poll, OMSOC's membership mentioned the following points as ones the new logo might reflect:
1. the organization's focus on the relationship between work and health
2. the emphasis on preventing disease and injury in the workplace
3. the scientific, neutral, and impartial way in which occupational medicine specialists render opinions
4. that OMSOC is a Canadian organization
5. that OMSOC is an organization of physician specialists
