What we do

The Healthcare Specialist Section was established in 2002 to provide a forum for health and safety professionals in the healthcare sector in Ireland to network and share ideas.

Our aims

  • Develop appropriate links and relationships with government, regulatory bodies and other relevant organisations
  • Seek a requirement for Chartered status for all new health and safety and non-clinical risk manager positions in the HSE – we're currently discussing this with the HSE's HR department
  • Develop IOSH representation on the newly formed HSE Health and Safety Advisory Group
  • Establish a subgroup (networking team) of safety practitioners for the intellectual and physical disability sector who will report to the section committee.
