The Group provides a forum for anyone with a keen interest in health and safety to meet and keep abreast of current developments. Our meetings are also a valuable opportunity for networking with other health and safety specialists. The programme of monthly meetings runs from September to June. We invite expert speakers to present their views on a topic of current interest. This is generally followed by a discussion period so the audience can explore these ideas and set them in the context of their own experience.

In addition, we arrange a visit to a local organisation to gain a practical insight into how they operate their safety management system.
If you have a role in managing the health & safety of your business, then why not join us?
