Play a part in our future

Do you want to influence the future of the health and safety profession, or even become a future president of IOSH? Then put your name forward for IOSH’s Council of Management.

Standing for Council is your opportunity to make a difference to the future direction of IOSH. As a Council of Management member, you will be responsible for appointing IOSH’s Board of Trustees and meeting twice a year, where you will be representing the profession as a whole.

And if you want to become President of IOSH, you have to be on Council to be elected. Membership of Council is now open to all members, including Graduate Members, Technician Members and Affiliates.

All you need to stand is either a nomination from your branch or specialist group, or two members to propose you. It’s that simple — so, if you want to change something or drive the profession to new heights, don’t sit on the sidelines, get involved.

All members are entitled to vote in the elections to Council and this year 12 places are open for a three-year term. A minimum of nine of these will be Chartered Fellows, Fellows, Chartered Members, Members, Retired or Life members. Up to three can be Graduates, Graduate Members, Technician Members or Affiliates.

Members retiring from Council this year who can be re-elected are: Martin Allan; Stephen Asbury; Martin Bessant; Douglas Cartwright; Reg Edwards; Mark Humphreys; Eleanor Lawson; Vincent McNeilly; Stephen Mills; Ron Muir; John Taylor; and, Bryan Toone.

Two of the retiring members, Neil Budworth and Wilson Lambe MBE, are not able to stand as they have served continuously for more than 12 years.

Nomination forms are available from the Chief Executive’s office by calling 0116 257 3110. The deadline for nominations to be returned is noon on 25 May. Go to and click on the ‘structure and representation’ link to find out more about how IOSH is run and how members are represented.
