Winner of IOSH collaboration award 2017

Happy to announce that the Northern Ireland IOSH Branch were the successful Winners of the Excellence Award 2017 for Working in Collaboration - (Engaging others inside and outside the profession with occupational safety and health issues).

Jackie O'Neill (Branch Chair) and Emma Gilmore (Vice Chair) very happy to receive the prestigious award at the IOSH Network Conference which took place on the 21st November 2017 n the International Convention Centre, Birmingham.

The branch were delighted to win this award against very tough competition from across the globe.

This certainly demonstrates how working in collaboration works so very well. We teamed up with the HSENI to support their Farm Safety Partnership stand at the Balmoral Agriculture show in May 2017. The IOSH Rural Industry groups also volunteered and supported the stand over the four days. We look forward to working with other likeminded bodies in the future to strengthen and enhance the industry.

Well done to everyone involved and a massive thanks to the NI Branch Committee, the IOSH team in Leicester and to our local Networks Co-ordinator for their continual support.
