East Lancashire District
Welcome to East Lancashire District of
IOSH (A part of the Manchester Branch). The district was
established in 2012 and meets at lunchtimes during the working week
serving the M65 corridor and East Lancashire. The District meetings

Advising on IOSH Membership
The East Lancashire District aims to provide
assistance for its members to become true professionals in
occupational health and safety. It does this by having access
to the Branch Education and Development Advisor (BEDA), who is also
a member of the District Committee, at each of our meetings.
BEDA offer guidance for members with preparations for the peer
review interview for IPC. We can also advise on levels of
membership from affiliate through to Fellowship and help with
Continuous Professional Development issues.

of events at our meetings and are open to suggestions on current
issues which affect our membership. Similarly if you have
