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 exhibited the No Time to Lose campaign at the Final Conference of the Joint Action on Cancer Control, in Malta.  We have translated one of our No Time to Lose leaflets into 24 European languages, to ensure that all EU countries take occupational cancer seriously.  You can read more about what happened here and through the NTTL Twitter feed.

We also attended a roundtable debate on modern slavery, in the House of Lords, discussed OSH in Europe at a panel debate in Brussels and welcomed the new NICE quality standard on healthy workplaces, which IOSH responded to following member input through our consultations page.

What's coming up?

Throughout spring our public affairs team will be promoting the value of good health and safety management to politicians across the world. In the UK we’ll continue to monitor the post-referendum discussions to ensure there is no lowering of health and safety standards.

We're also taking ISO 45001 on a UK roadshow and asking for you views through our consultations page. We’re currently seeking your views on the UK Government’s Industrial Strategy.  Please do let us know your thoughts by responding on our website, and remember, responding to IOSH consultations can be logged as CPD.
