Maintaining and improving professional standards is at the core of our mission. As the IOSH Chiltern Branch, we adhere to world-class standards for OSH practitioners. We offer events and webinars that empower our members to develop their skills and expertise continually. By upholding these high standards, we ensure that our members are recognised and trusted for their ability to create safe and healthy workplaces.

Through our efforts, we drive action from those who can influence global OSH standards, inspiring positive change and promoting excellence in the field.
We also champion the role of OSH in social sustainability. By emphasising the well-being of workers and advocating for the integration of OSH principles, we contribute to the success of businesses and the betterment of society as a whole.
Through our diverse network and continuous professional development opportunities, we connect professionals, enabling them to develop and thrive in their OSH careers. By fostering collaboration and creating a culture of ongoing learning, we contribute to the growth of the OSH community and advance the profession collectively.
