About us

Welcome to the West of Scotland Branch, which is the oldest and largest of the Scottish Branches. We represent around 1600 members who live and work up and down the West of Scotland, from the Scottish Borders to Oban. Our members work for a large variety of organisations and each bring with them a uniquely valuable level of experience and outlook.

The West of Scotland Branch collaborates with the other four Scottish branches to collectively run the IOSH Scotland committee. This brings the branches together with the IOSH professional staff 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 their prospects by achieving Chartered membership of IOSH. We actively support members in their career progression and have a team of volunteers who provide assistance to those seeking to achieve Chartered Member and Fellowship status.

Keep an eye on official Branch emails for the most up-to-date information on our programme, events and other details.
