IOSH Edinburgh Branch represents over 800 members who generally come from the Lothians and the Borders and West Fife who work for a large variety of organisations.
The Edinburgh Branch collaborates with the other four Scottish branches to run the IOSH Scotland committee. This brings the branches together with the IOSH professional staff, IOSH Council and Board of Trustees, to provide synergy to the work of the branches in promoting IOSH in Scotland and also link in with the Partnership on Health and Safety in Scotland (PHASS) network.
We believe one of our key duties is to encourage members to develop prospects by achieving Chartered membership of IOSH. A principal function of the branch mentors is to help members to do this.
They particularly concentrate on helping new Graduate Members through the Initial Professional Development (IPD) process to achieve Chartered status.
To find out more about the potential support available with IPD contact the Edinburgh Branch representative Liz Young.
Don't forget to keep in touch and up to date with our activities with regular visits our network pages or our Twitter account.
