The purpose of this study was to develop a job competency model of workplace health education in order to provide standardized and unified tools for occupational health professionals. The study was conducted by using methodological study design. Literature review, job analysis, and job validity verification were conducted. A convenience sample of 485 occupational health professionals participated in the study. Through a literature review and job analysis, job competency of workplace health education was structured. Verification of validity was achieved among university-research industries with various professionals affiliated with occupational health professionals. Verified job competency model of workplace health education for occupational health professionals consisted of eight duties and 40 tasks. The tasks given high performance and importance by occupational health professionals were included in the ‘planning’ and ‘implementation’ factors. The tasks which were considered important but were not performed relatively well were included in the ‘evaluation and improvement’ factor. The results indicated that the job competency model of workplace health education for occupational health professionals is a validated tool. Further studies are needed to explore the performance levels based on the job competency model of this study.
