Singapore Branch Annual General Meeting 2015

5 May 2015

On 17 April 2015, Mr Ian Harper, President of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) joined us at our AGM  at the Marriott Hotel for the Singapore Branch’s Annual General Meeting. With Ian was Gisela Derrick our International Coordinator from IOSH who has supported our branch in recent years.

The evening commenced with the branch Chairman, Darren Brunton welcoming the special guests and everyone followed by show casing the Singapore Branch’s past year achievements, initiatives and branch activities and highlighting the great work the branch has contributed to safety in Singapore and the region over the previous 12 months. Darren continued to announce the branch’s new exco to the members who subsequently introduced themselves and thanked all the outgoing exco members for their contribution and dedication over the past few years. Each outgoing exco member was handed a small token of appreciation.

Following Darren’s presentation, dinner was made available where members help themselves to a wide spread of international delicacies.

After dinner, Ian Harper gave an interesting presentation on occupational cancers which was well received by the members on that night. Ian shared with us a short presentation on the "No Time to Lose" campaign. IOSH aims to raise the awareness of occupational cancer and get the causes more widely understood and help all in working together to beat occupational cancer.  The presentation was followed by a Q&A session whereby members exchange their views on the subject- proving that the awareness on the ’’No Time To Lose’’ Campaign had certainly started in Singapore!  

The evening ended with the Branch Chairman presenting token of appreciation to Ian Harper and Gisela along with Branch Jackets (which are very sort after items of clothing throughout IOSH Globally!) followed by the group photos.

The AGM was very a successful one with a total of approximately 60 members attending the special evening, including members from neighbouring countries of Brunei, Indonesia and Malaysia. The event provided a chance for members to network and opportunities were also available for members to ask questions and receive information about IOSH and its future developments.
