Dear Branch Members,

Welcome to IOSH Oman Branch Microsite.

 It is my great honour to be elected as the Chairman of Oman Branch this year and take up this important role in leading the Branch to its continuous development. The Branch will continue to strive for membership development and professional link with other stakeholders, and maintain a very close working relationship with the Headquarters of IOSH (UK).

Since 2013, the IOSH Oman branch has achieved a lot and has got closer to the branch members. It is very pleased to note that the Branch has Memorandum of Understanding signed with Oman Society for Petroleum Services (OPAL) & Oman Society of Contractors (OSC), which have wide corporate members working in Oman development. We still aim for better connections with not only the existing members, but also with non-members who wish to get more acquainted with IOSH and become an active member in promoting the OHS message and awareness in the Oman.

In 2016-17, our main strategic goals for the branch will be make IOSH presence in Oman more visible, supporting Health & Safety Professional to develop in their carrier path and Promoting Health & Safety culture to young generations. To achieve our Branch goals and IOSH vision, we will best utilize all possible competencies and expertise within our branch members.

We will have following focus area in 2016-17:

 

Oman stresses the importance of Health and Safety of all residents of Oman and we have seen lot of positive change in the safety, health and well-being of the people in the country.
