Volunteer led webinars/virtual meetings

Check out our online sessions on a range of topics hosted by our branches and groups

Our branch and group volunteers promote health and safety by organising meetings, conferences, workshops and webinars, which provide valuable professional development and networking opportunities.  

After attending an event you should add this as an activity on your online CPD record and take the opportunity to reflect on your learning. Read some simple tips on how to do this.

All webinar/meeting timings below are shown as UK Time (GMT or BST), unless specified.

What's a webinar?

Our webinars are focused on providing technical information to larger audiences where you can hear from speakers on a range of relevant subject matter.

No audio rights are available to attendees in these sessions, but you can get involved and put questions to speakers/panellists via the Q&A function.

What's a Zoom meeting?

Our Zoom meetings are smaller sessions which provide an interactive platform for you to hear from speakers on specific content, but also get involved in robust discussions and network with other OSH professionals joining the sessions.
