What we are up to

IOSH staff speaking to delegates at the IOSH conference stand

From campaigning on key issues, lobbying governments on policy and law to developing new health and safety tools, our work keeps us very busy! Here's a taster of what we've recently been up to and what's happening soon.

Recent highlights

IOSH recently attended the World Congress on Safety and Health at Work in Singapore, where startling new figures were announced indicating that globally an estimated 742,000 people die annually from cancers that are linked to work activities.

In the UK, IOSH commented on the terms of reference for the Grenfell Tower Inquiry and the independent review of building regulations and fire safety, calling for the former to be “a watershed for fire safety”, and for the latter to provide “considerable step change”.

What's coming up?

This week IOSH representatives are attending the ISO PC 283 meeting in Malacca, Malaysia, to discuss ISO 45001. The meeting will decide whether to issue a final draft international standard (incorporating recent feedback and comments), or move directly to publication.

Also this week, the IOSH No Time to Lose campaign will be promoted in the Balkans, with events in Macedonia, Montenegro, Kosovo, Serbia and Albania.

We’re also currently asking for members’ views on a consultation on the UK’s Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety. If you have a view on this, or have seen a consultation you think IOSH should know about, please let us know at publicaffairs@iosh.com.
