Safety, Health & Wellbeing Panel

The Safety, Health and Wellbeing Panel works to keep members up to date with changes to health and safety legislation.

The panel reviews and seeks to influence health and safety related legislation, regulations and codes of practice.

 

Structure:
  • Chair
  • Representative of the Health and Safety Executive
  • Representative of the Young Members Panel
  • Up to 11 other members

As an experienced practitioner in safety, health and wellbeing issues you will work with the panel to provide useful guidance and updates to members.

You will attend four meetings a year and have full access to all related documents. You will undertake some work between meetings.

Participating in the panel is a great way to contribute to your Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

We invite expressions of interest in panel membership each September, contacting all members except Student Members.
