Federal Occupational Health (FOH) is a non-appropriated agency within the Program Support Center (PSC) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). FOH works in partnership with federal organizations nationally and internationally to design and deliver comprehensive occupational health solutions exclusively to federal employees.
Created in 1946 by an amendment to the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C.), FOH has nearly 70 years of experience providing services exclusively to Federal agencies. In 1984, FOH became fully reimbursable, operating free of congressional appropriations. This means that FOH operates like a business within the government and charges government agencies for the services it provides them.
Today, FOH is the largest provider of occupational health services in the federal government, serving more than 360 federal agencies and reaching 1.8 million federal employees.
