Currently we have a virtual monthly offering of events to enhance your CPD and so we are able to welcome IOSH members from all over the world to our meetings.
There are a wide range of membership levels within our branch committee from Tech to Fellow who can assist in mentoring and advising on best practice for any individual who is hoping to join IOSH or upgrade their membership.
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.
