Safety and health conference to help open doors for early career professionals

Early career professionals working in safety and health will be sharing and receiving essential career advice, tips and support for succeeding in their careers and overcoming challenges in their roles during an upcoming conference on Tuesday 5 November.

Organised by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), the Conference has been specially designed to support members of the Future Leaders Community – which includes IOSH Student Members, OSH professionals under the age of 35 and those who have been in the profession for under five years.

The day will be made up of presentations, workshops and panel discussions, alongside the opportunity for attendees to network with peers and like-minded professionals.

Delegates will receive essential career advice and support, networking opportunities, invaluable insights into how to develop their professional skills and more.

The keynote speech will be given by experienced safety and health expert and Chartered IOSH member Neil Lennox, Head of Group Safety and Insurance at Sainsbury’s, who will be discussing the OSH professional of the future and why it is important more people consider pursuing safety and health as a career choice.

Neil said: “It is critical that safety professionals have their voice heard in the Boardroom now more than ever. To do that we need people to join our profession who can share the message that “Good Safety is Good Business” and clearly articulate how we contribute to corporate governance and profitability.

“I hope that I can share my passion and enthusiasm for making safety simple and part of our corporate DNA with as many people as possible to ensure that our profession has a great future.”
