Making an impact

Over 1100 visitors made their way through the halls of the Telford International Centre during the IOSH conference and exhibition, collecting information, seeking professional advice and attending the free presentations in the two spotlight theatres.

The IOSH stand was buzzing with activity. Visitors came to have a look at online services including the OH Toolkit, MyIOSH, the Workplace hazard awareness course, Wiseup2work and Safestartup, and the new Working and Managing safely training packages. No one went away empty handed — they picked up the latest free guidance documents, Wiseup2work mobile shammys, IOSH books and merchandise, and a healthy fruit alternative to the chocolates on offer from other stands. And one lucky person won a day of paintballing in the IMPACT competition.

IOSH president Lisa Fowlie was on hand to discuss her new blog, launched at the conference, as well as the Get the Best campaign and ongoing meetings with MPs to push forward our Putting young workers first agenda. Céline McKeown and Michael Twiss, authors of ‘Workplace ergonomics: a practical guide’, signed copies of their book for customers at the stand.

IOSH Manchester and North West Districts and Midland branch committee members were there to talk about local events, networking opportunities and the benefits of being active in local branches.

The 16 Specialist Groups had their own stand and members were available to offer information, advice and complimentary drinks to visitors at their stand.
