Highlands and Islands
April 2011 saw the inaugural meeting of the
new Highlands and Islands Branch which aims to reach members in
some of Scotland’s most remote areas.
Helen Beveridge, Highlands and Islands Branch chair, said:
“Starting this branch was about making sense of the geographical
membership and getting the resources to go out and deliver the IOSH
message to more places than are currently accessible.”
"As a Committee we are very keen to make our
events and other IOSH information available to you regardless of
where you live in the Highlands and Islands. We continue to
look at alternatives and this year we will be digitally recording
the CPD sessions and uploading them onto the Highlands and Islands
Branch microsite on the national IOSH website. Where possible we
will also be making the speaker’s material available.
Please contact Helen Beveridge
(Chair) or Ian Soden (Secretary) with your
views on how best we can reach those of you who are unable to
attend at the Kingsmills Hotel in Inverness. We would also like to
hear from members on future subjects to be covered at the monthly
CPD events, topics need not be solely related to health or safety
but could just as well cover the development of new professional
Please make a note of the CPD dates, block out
your diary and come to the Kingsmills to get a valuable input on a
subject that you may not normally deal with. We look forward to
seeing you throughout the forthcoming season!"
