Professor David Fishwick
Consultant Respiratory Physician, STH Foundation NHS Trust
Professor Fishwick is Co-Director of the Centre for Workplace Health, and Chief Medical Officer of the Health and Safety Laboratory. He was also appointed the Honorary Professor of Occupational and Environmental Respiratory Medicine at the University of Sheffield in 2010. His research interests are focused around the broad interface between the work environment and respiratory health. He also has active research interests in health surveillance for workers exposed to potentially harmful exposures at work, in addition to the diagnostic processes used to identify disease. This work has led previously to the development of professional standards in this area, and the ability to influence policy. He is currently working on a number of research themes, including a pan European PEROSH wellbeing initiative and a Strategy Research Programme for HSL relating to health at work, and a smoking cessation project for the British Occupational Health Research Foundation.
