MP120111AH2_029-1I am Tom Cox: I am an organizational psychologist of some experience broadly specialising in occupational health issues relating to work, health and the sustainability of working life. I was awarded the CBE in 2000 for my contribution to occupational health. This award was largely related to my role in the development of the Management Standards approach to work-related stress and psychosocial risks to employee health.  My current concerns are cancer survivorship and work participation and also post-traumatic stress.

I hold Chairs at three universities. My primary affiliation is with Birkbeck University of London where, until October 2020, I hold the Chair of Occupational Health, Psychology & Management and am Director of the Centre for Sustainable Working Life (CSWL) in the School of Business, Economics & Informatics. I am also heavily involved in the METIS Collaboration as its Co Director. METIS is hosted at the University of Aberdeen by the Academic Urology Unit in the Institute of Applied Health Sciences, School of Medicine & Dentistry. I hold an Honorary Chair in Psychosocial Oncology at that University. Last, but not least, I have an Emeritus Chair in Organizational Psychology at the University of Nottingham in the Division of Psychiatry & Applied Psychology, School of Medicine.

images-2Hopefully, I am a productive researcher. I have had about 17530 citations of my more substantive publications (so far) with a h-index of 65 and an i10-index of 187 (Google Scholar). Since the early years of my partial retirement in 2013, I have managed an h-index of 43 and an i10-index of 110 (Google Scholar).

This is my personal and work blog. At present, the Blog shares news of my current research and related interests, my professional activities, and some of my travels. It also copies in my Twitter account which is focused on the Centre (CSWL) (OHP@BBK1) and RSS feeds in my areas of interest. The Blog incorporates material from The OHP Review originally published as an online guide to Occupational Health Psychology. You can read my comments on current political events at:

The blog has achieved over 25,629 hits. Recently, the top 10 countries, by hits, have been the UK, Canada, Poland, USA, Brazil, Italy, Australia, Ireland, Germany and Sweden. The blog also seems to have some appeal in some smaller countries such as Latvia, the UAE, Cyprus, Iceland, Serbia and Croatia!
