On the 12 June, Darren Brunton, Sok Hwee and Lim Ping were invited guest to the University of Newcastle (UON) 2015 Awards gala dinner.

This was the inaugural UON Awards dinner and our branch was pleased to be able to sponsor the event. There were many awards presented to individuals who have contributed to the growth and development of UON in Singapore and students who have achieved the highest mid-course scores in their relevant degree courses. IOSH Singapore Branch has previously sponsored the graduation and awarded the highest achieving graduate with one year’s IOSH membership. This year UON approached the branch to request if we could sponsor the same for the highest achiever mid-way though the degree program. We thought this was an excellent idea as it provides an earlier entry to the IOSH membership allowing the individual to network, gain experience with members, use the extensive research tools available and much more.

This year the sponsor membership award went to Mr Brar Govind Singh who was in attendance with his mother and father. ‘It is always encouraging to see new and young individuals enter the safety industry and as an International Branch we are pleased we can reward high achievers and bridge this together with UON Australia – Singapore and IOSH UK’ said Darren Brunton IOSH Singapore Branch Chairman.
