Occupational & Preventive Health

UBC’s Occupational & Preventive Health (OPH) unit provides confidential and free programs and services to help protect the health and safety of staff, faculty and paid students working both on and off campus, including UBC Okanagan and hospital sites.

OPH is available to all staff, faculty and paid students who have questions or concerns about their health and safety in the workplace, including questions around COVID-19. To book an appointment with one of our nurses, please contact OPH at oph.info@ubc.ca or 604-827-4713.

If you believe you require assessment for COVID-19 please use the Support App and Self-Assessment Tool, developed by the BC Ministry of Health. Evidence-based and current information on COVID-19 can be accessed through the BC Centre for Disease Control.
