At the August Humber Branch meeting, long-standing committee member Colin Henery received the prestigious President’s Commendation Award from the IOSH president Jimmy Quinn.
The President’s Commendation Award is an award offered to a person to recognise their valuable contribution to OSH, whether directly linked to IOSH or our wider community. Colin has been awarded for the time and dedication that he has volunteered to the Humber Branch. He has been a committee member for over ten years and arranged many of the quality speakers who have presented at the Humber Branch events.
Colin has often gone the extra mile to help arrange the fantastic programmes that the Humber branch have been able to deliver, whether collecting the speakers from the train station or securing quality speakers a year in advance, he is always on hand to make sure the events run smoothly.
Colin has welcomed and mentored committee members during their time on the committee and in return has earned the respect of the committee members with his can-do positive attitude. He is the go-to person to stand in for the chair/vice-chair and always delivers a first-class role.
Colin is the type of dedicated member that IOSH are proud of and through this award, we recognise his commitment and length of service with both IOSH and the Humber branch.
