About us

We have over 2,300 members, and our main focus is on professionals who work in isolated or remote locations.

We also provide industry news from a wide range of sources on our comprehensive, up-to-date webpages.

The IOSH Rural Industries Group covers agriculture, horticulture, forestry, fisheries, conservation, equine activities, rural estate management and other businesses that get their income from the rural economy.

  • Runs sector-specific events.
  • Sits on the Health and Safety Executive's Agriculture Industry Advisory Committee, its project groups and other committees to influence and motivate the industry to improve health and safety standards.
  • Has compiled an advisory panel of members to offer a readily available pool of knowledge for members to access
  • Works closely with other branches and groups, particularly the Ireland Branches Rural Industries Section.
