The Ireland Branch of IOSH was founded in 1982 with a handful of members. Through the dedication of those founder members and the development of the profession, the numbers of IOSH members in Ireland is now over 1,800.
The Ireland Branch committee consists of the Chairperson, Vice-Chairperson, Treasurer, Secretary, Development Officer, some non-officer members, a representative from each of the districts and specialist sections, and the Irish representative to some of the UK-based groups.
Currently in the branch there are two districts and three specialist sections each with their own dedicated pages. Members are affiliated to their local district and may join any of the specialist sections.
Ireland Branch district committees, Western and North Western, meet regularly and host conferences, seminars and events for their members.
Ireland Branch specialist sections focus on construction, fire risk management and rural industries and arrange regular events on these topics.
