Why Join Our Health and Safety Group?
Stay informed – Our group is dedicated to promoting higher standards of health and safety across all industries, commerce, healthcare, education, and other places of employment.  Our aim is to promote higher standards of health and safety by providing our members with up-to-date information on health and safety matters. You’ll gain invaluable insights and stay updated on best practices to keep your workplace safe.
Connect & share knowledge – Become a part of a dynamic network where knowledge and advice are freely shared. Our supportive members come from a range of industries and are happy to help you where they can. Whether you’re an employer, health and safety inspector, or a trade union member, we share information and learn from each other.
Foster fellowship & cooperation – We believe in the power of community. By working together at a local level, we can significantly enhance occupational safety and health in Worcestershire, protecting everyone from workplace risks. Each meeting also gives you the opportunity to meet other people with similar health and safety responsibilities in a range of industries to discuss mutual problems and concerns in a non-enforcement situation.
What We Offer
 Local forum: Regular meetings, networking opportunities, and cooperation between various members who include sole traders, SMEs, national and global organisations. Everyone is welcome!
 Expert presentations: Our presentations will develop your knowledge of a wide range of H&S issues such as legal info, environmental updates, statutory inspections / LOLER, noise, and diabetes. For instance, in March 2024, Tim Prestage Ltd gave an eye-opening talk on the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations (DSEAR) Assessment. It’s amazing how many industries these regulations cover and the consequences of not following them correctly!
 Warm welcome: Try a meeting with no obligation to join. Experience the friendly and welcoming atmosphere we pride ourselves on.
 CPD: Attendance at our meetings could count towards your Continuing Professional Development (CPD) as required by professional associations.
 Affordable membership rates: You get all this for an incredibly low annual fee that offers fantastic value for money. Company/organisation membership is just £50 per year (up to 3 attendees per meeting), and individual membership is only £25 per year. Plus, there are no joining fees.
