Branch history

The South West Branch of IOSH started life as an offshoot of the Bristol Branch and for many years operated in this informal way with an enthusiastic group, including Henry Tabb, who devised a programme of events for those members unable to make the long journey to Bristol.

With growing numbers in Devon and Cornwall, IOSH agreed to a new South West Branch which was launched at Dartington Hall in April 2000 under the chairmanship of Robert Hawkins. The branch has since flourished and we've seen our membership steadily grow. We now offer our members an annual programme of events which proves ever more popular.
