President's end of year Message 2014
15 December 2014
What an eventful year 2014 has been. We have heard of companies achieving great success in their OHS programmes. We held a successful conference at Gallagher in May with over 500 delegates and we started our free Breakfast Workshops around the country.
I see great things for the profession and the professionals in 2015. Firstly there is talk of new legislation which will tighten up on compliance by managements of companies. Then there is the sharp drive by the DOL to increase the number of inspectors as well as providing them with special training. Saiosh continues to grow and has passed the 3500 member mark. We will continue with our free Breakfast Workshops for members. There is the OHS Conference at Gallagher Estate in May 2015 and we will be introducing a free e-learning programme for members in the New Year.
Please note our offices will be closed from 22 December 2014 to 2 January 2015.
My wish for all our members is to make your 2015 an even brighter year for OHS than this year. My Council Members join me in wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous and Safe New Year.
Health and safety regards,
Robin W Jones
