Announcement: new editor for SHP
Lauren Applebey, the current commissioning editor for SHP, will be taking on the role of editor in the new year.
The current editor, Roz Sanderson, will be leaving at the end of the year to live and work in New Zealand.
Lauren, who has worked in health and safety for ten years, is a qualified journalist and has a construction NEBOSH, making her a perfect choice as the next editor for SHP.
Her close working relationship with many regular contributors, associations, as well as internal and external stakeholders stands her in good stead to continue the upward trajectory of SHP’s readership.
Roz took on the role of editor for SHP at a time when it went from a paper magazine with a little digital support to being a wholly digital publication. She has used the medium to great effect, using videos, webinars, quizzes, and a regular stream of news and features to double the usage of SHP in one year.
As well as ensuring SHP has flourished online, she was also the joint founder of Women in Health and Safety, which now has almost 1,000 members and successfully ran the first Rising Stars in Health and Safety awards in 2016, which had over 150 entrants in the first year. Roz will continue to freelance for SHP from New Zealand as a contributor.
Please join me in wishing Roz all the best for next year and offering congratulations to Lauren in her new role!
Both Roz and Lauren will be at the Women in Health and Safety Christmas Party, hosted by Acre and SHP in the evening of the 6th December, if you would like to say goodbye to Roz, and give a warm welcome to Lauren.
