Pioneers of Progress

The story of the safety and health profession

Since 1945, IOSH and our members have been shaping safety and health in the workplace. Pioneers of Progress is an exciting new project that will chart the progress that has been made in those 75 years.

Pioneers of Progress will tell the story of the profession through the voices of safety and health professionals around the world. Now it's your chance to get involved - help us show where the profession started, how far it has come, and what it might look like in the future.

Perhaps you were part of a ground-breaking first, or have seen workplaces dramatically transformed by changes in safety and health. Maybe you have photos, documents or other items that show how much the profession has changed. Or do you have a vision of how new developments will continue to enhance the profession? Whatever your story is, we want to hear from you.
