On behalf of the Executive Committee I
would like to welcome you to the Yorkshire Branch micro-website.
Hopefully you will find our site helpful, informative and a good
way of staying in touch with the Branch and other IOSH
The aim of the Branch is to support its
members in their professional activities and in their professional
development. To this end the Yorkshire Branch holds monthly
meetings, from January to November, where members can meet and
network in an informal friendly atmosphere. Whilst our meetings are
primarily for IOSH members they are also open to anyone with an
interest in health and safety.
Recent topics and presentations have included
legal updates, contractor management, occupational health,
construction, LEV and respiratory hazards and environmental topics.
These provide those attending with opportunities to develop or fine
tune their health and safety knowledge and skills.
I am supported in my role as Branch Chair by
an active, supportive and enthusiastic Executive Committee of
volunteers who work hard to benefit members and provide the best
development opportunities. Support is available when mentoring is
required, just to help with CPD and IPD, or even just for friendly
advice. A mentor drop in session is generally available to give
advice and guidance before each Branch meeting.
I look forward to welcoming you to our
meetings and if you have any queries please contact one of the
Executive Committee members who will be only too willing to
