Top three in my opinion:
Knowledge about community/occupational health
Advanced education - be it through advanced degrees or CEU
Communications skills

OH expertise can be obtained through employment with OH clinics; membership/participation in local, state, and national OH organizations; government websites providing OH information (i.e. OSHA) - to name a few

Although OH skills are many times obtained through on the job experience, it is important to include the educational experience so you can apply the academics behind this interesting and rewarding field.
