Welcome from the Chair

Dear members and prospective members of IOSH – welcome to West Africa Branch.

As Chair of IOSH West Africa South South District, I am delighted to welcome you to a Branch that was a thought and then a vision that has materialised to the first of its kind in Africa – IOSH West Africa Branch. Truly, dreams come true, not through wishful thinking but through dedication and hard work.

I’ve watched IOSH West Africa Branch grow from an informal network, to a formal network, then a division and now a Branch. Under the leadership of our past chairs, Engr Kayode Fowode, Dapo Omolade and our present chair, Temitope Mudele, I’ve seen hardworking and dedicated volunteers who have worked tirelessly, investing time and resources to ensure this great feat is achieved.

For us at the South South District, this is not just a transition, this is a reward for all the time, dedication, hard work and innovations tailored to our needs in the district and West Africa at large, as well as unrelenting membership drive and passion-driven energy to succeed. Thus, becoming a formal Branch of IOSH was earned by every member of IOSH West Africa.

This great feat is a motivation and a reminder for us to go the extra mile, resolutely pulling our weight together as volunteers and members of the District to achieve more for the IOSH West Africa Branch.

Warm welcome

Joseph Justin Jerome
Chair, IOSH South South District
On behalf of the Executive Committee and Members
