These played a big role in the provision of standardised high quality occupational health medical services minimising the variation in medical management between the different tears of the clinical staff and covering all the legal aspects of care.

This guide is published by the ICOH and it forms the bases for a project owned by the Scientific Committee of the International Commission of Occupational Health (ICOH) for raising Occupational health awareness in developing countries (http://www.icohweb.org/site/oh-guide.asp) Although this Guide was designed for developing countries, it has proved very useful to those in Developed countries as well and is translated to at least 8 languages. She has performed a small pilot study about the acceptance of employers to use this guide in Sudan and has presented the findings at Seoul at the ICOH Conference in 2015. Her daily work always required skilful communications and negotiations with different stakeholders as well as report writing and from an early stage in her career she realised that such skills are vital in any role.
