East Anglia Branch - letter from the Chair

Happy Summer Holidays to you all, wherever this message finds you, I hope it finds you well. 

To date 2019 has been a great year for the East Anglia branch, we have held 2 events, beginning at Tattersalls where we welcomed the HSE LOcHER team, Bev Messinger (Chief Executive, IOSH) and over 70 delegates, receiving fantastic feedback all round from a very unique event and venue. In June we held our Annual Conference in Ipswich, drawing over 100 delegates to a full day event that focused on Fire Management.

The next event within this year’s programme is as follows:

Date: 06 September 2019 (re-arranged from the 2019 programme)
Subject: CPD / IPD Workshop
Venue: Cambridge Golf & Conference Centre, Cambridge Road, Hemingford Abbots, Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, PE28 9HQ

As communicated to all of our members early in 2019, ANYONE wishing to attend this, or our other branch meetings need to book their place in advance, failure to do so may mean that anyone trying to attend on the day who haven’t booked their place will not be permitted entry if all of the allotted spaces have been filled.

Book your place online.

Within last year’s branch survey we received some very interesting insights from our members relating to topics, locations as well as logistical preferences, a range of these have now been included into our strategy and forthcoming events, and are as follows:

  • 02 October 2019 - Essex Joint Event, Ivy Hill, Margueretting.
  • 22 November 2019 - ‘Back to Working Well’, Norwich Ski Centre, Trowse, Norwich.
  • 28 February 2020 - ‘Excellence in Construction’, Peterborough Football Ground, Peterborough.
  • 24 April 2020 – AGM, details TBC.

You can find out more about the Branch and our activities via the IOSH website, on our East Anglia Branch LinkedIn Group page as well as on our own Twitter account.

Wishing you safe travels,
