Voting for IOSH Council is now open!

Voting is now open to elect the twelve new members of IOSH Council.

From Wednesday 01 July, all members are invited to vote in the Council elections. We strongly recommend you take the time to review applications and vote for who you would like to represent the voice of the membership.  

It is essential that voters understand who they are voting for and what they stand for. Many forms of campaigning are not only legitimate but welcome and the following link sets out how to remain compliant with our electioneering rules.

During the voting period members can also post questions to candidates on the IOSH dedicated Members’ Forum.

Those elected will join after the Institution’s Annual General Meeting in October and successful candidates will serve for the next three years.

Why you should make your vote?
