Women in Health and Safety

Join the Women in Health and Safety committee

Women in Health and Safety is a thriving network of people who support gender equality and want to see women flourish in the profession. It is seeking men and women to join the committee. Can you make a difference?

Women in health & safety logoThe Women in Health and Safety network is run by an independent committee, Chaired by Dr Judith Grant, Director of Health and Wellbeing at Mace. The network hosts free-to-attend events, for all health and safety practitioners, which take place throughout the year around the UK. All past and upcoming events are listed on the SHP Women in Health and Safety hub and advertised in the Women in Health and Safety LinkedIn group.

Women in Health and Safety has committee hubs in London and North/Midlands. As a member of the committee there are four key requirements:

  • Host an event yourself each year or play a functional role within the committee (see below). An event can be a mini-meet in a pub, or a full-on networking session with guest speakers. This will always include finding a sponsor, a location and speakers.
  • Attend the main Women in Health and Safety meeting of the year at Safety & Health Expo, in London, from 19-21 May 2020.
  • Attend or dial in to the London meeting three times a year OR be part of the North/Midlands branch.
  • Write-up your event for SHP or liaise with editorial team for a journalist to attend.


Join the Women in Health and Safety committee

Women in Health and Safety is a group that’s open to all health and safety professionals, male or female.

If you are unable to host an event yourself, but still want to play an active role within the committee, Women in Health and Safety is also looking to fill two functional roles within the committee, a social media manager and events coordinator.

Social media manager

  • Ensure events are publicised on the LinkedIn and Facebook pages;
  • Encourage posting in both from members of the community;
  • Moderate comments.

Events coordinator

Working with SHP, the event coordinator would:

  • Ensure that every committee member, who has not got another role, runs an event;
  • Gather information from event organisation to enable SHP to publicise the event;
  • Ensure the committee and social media manager are kept up-to-date with upcoming events.
