Welcome to IOSH in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Branch, it is a great honor for me to take this role for the second time and support the IOSH UAE branch and our members

It gives us enormous pleasure and honor to welcome fellow OSH professionals to the United Arab Emirates Branch of IOSH the largest chapter outside of the UK. IOSH UAE Branch is considered to be one of the most active and dynamic. We represent over 3000 Occupational, Safety and Health professionals throughout the region.

The IOSH UAE branch had made its global marking on the map with its continual efforts and success from its predecessor, which is clearly visible from the amount of followers in social media and the members.

The committee will focus on enhancing the safety professionals encouraging participation and influencing all safety professionals regardless of their limitations and as per IOSH Equality and diversity policy, influencing OHS professionals locally and internationally.

We strive to collaborate with regional health and safety peer groups for integrating IOSH into their day-to-day life and to be a part of IOSH’s active membership. We will include innovative technologies and methods to increase member engagement and active participation on achieving IOSH’s Activate 2028 strategy.

As a part of our future plans, the new committee will be working further enhancing the coordination among our members and making our presence in virtual and face to face meetings. Our key focus to help us achieve this would be to listen to our members more. We keep all our members updated with our social media & other platforms.

This website would be the gateway to many ambitious milestones that we have envisioned. We would put all our combined strength and resources to achieve and maintain a lasting platform for success. We work as One IOSH, with a Mission of adapting to changes that will influence fellow OHS professional with collaboratively involving stakeholders, authorities, and experts to achieve IOSH Strategy, IOSH Charitable objects, Competency Framework and other set milestones.

On Behalf of the 2023-2024 Executive Committee, I express our Gratitude to all its distinguished members, stakeholders, visitors and contributors for their tireless efforts in realizing our goals and accompanying us in the journey. I look forward to getting closer and together.

Stay Safe,

Syed Mazhar Ali Shah
