  • Perspectives on effective leadership for health and safety

    Effective Leadership
    The contributions which make up this document arose from a one-day seminar on leadership organised by IOSH's Midland Branch East District. This collection of thought-provoking pieces provides different perspectives on effective leadership. Although they do not constitute a formal IOSH position on the subject, they can be used as prompts for individual reflection and discussion with peers and others in the workplace.

  • Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability

    IOSH advocates OSH beyond minimum compliance in the CSR and sustainability agenda to improve performance and save lives. We believe stronger linkage between OSH and CSR and sustainability can help ensure that OSH is viewed more strategically and positively and that standards are raised worldwide.

    Health and safety professionals have a leading role to play in building sustainable workforces within sustainable organisations for a sustainable world – protecting life and limb and strengthening reputation, resilience and results.
