Your Midland Branch celebrates 65 years of serving you, the Branch members since 1952.

2017 will be an amazing year for your Midland Branch as the Branch members celebrate its 65th "Blue Sapphire" anniversary.  

We reflect first on 2016, which was a busy year of CPD and networking opportunities for members. The Branch laid on some great presentations with many new members joining us to network and make friends, highlights include -

  • Celebrating our 650th branch meeting with a "bang" when we demonstrated pyrotechnic safety.
  • Debating contentious and current safety issues with the members participating in the "big debate".
  • Getting in very early with the latest updates on ISO 45001
  • Supporting construction and engineering colleagues with silica updates.
  • We had another great annual "Winterfest" day driven by safety team building, presentation and fun.
  • Our 7th Annual "Complete Practitioner" day supported members with professional development.

The Branch Committee wishes to thank all the members for making 2016 a success and we especially appreciate the kind feedback describing how relaxed friendly and inviting the Branch has been to all.

During 2017, our 65th anniversary year, we will deliver more entertaining presentations on a number of subjects including 

  • Face fit and respiratory protective equipment
  • Asbestos developments
  • Nanotechnology
  • Legal updates
  • Professional Development
  • New Practitioners Conference
  • Environment update
  • and more

Our venue at Hollyfields is just outside Birmingham City Centre in Erdington. It is easily accessible of the Midland motorway network with a large free car park and friendly venue staff, who have been looking after your Branch for over a decade. It’s a great place to network with guests and members of all grades across industry. We look forward to you joining us as we celebrate throughout 2017.
