We welcome IOSH members from all over the UK to our meetings, especially members from our geographical region, as well as those from neighbouring branches.
Our CPD Mentoring Adviser, Carol Stearne, has organised annual CPD workshops during recent years. Carol is available at most meetings to advise members on CPD and personal development.
Our branch holds joint meetings with the South Cumbria Occupational Health & Safety Group (SCOHSG) to the mutual benefit of both groups; we share meeting costs and expertise. IOSH members are able to help raise IOSH's profile in the community by networking with representatives from small companies who do not have access to a safety professional in their workplace.
SCOHSG (established 1950s), is a forum, organised by volunteers, where representatives from small and medium sized companies keep up-to-date with Health & Safety legislation, discuss practical solutions to health and safety problems, meet Health and Safety Practitioners from other organisations for informal advice and listen to specialist speakers. Membership is open to companies, not individuals.
