Chief Executive
''Through its WORK 2022 strategy, IOSH delivers advancements that promote and realise our vision for a safe and healthy world of work. Reducing exposures to work-related health hazards is a vital part of this. It is at the heart of what our 47,000 members advising businesses in EU member states and other countries strive to do every day. IOSH is glad to support this EU-OSHA campaign to improve the management of dangerous substances. We will seek to align aspects of our own campaigning and activity with that of EU-OSHA so our voice, unified with others, will help to raise awareness, share good practice and improve standards of management.”
Mission Statement: 
At the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), we're committed to creating a world of work which is safe, healthy and sustainable.
As the world's biggest health and safety professional membership organisation, we're the voice of the profession, campaigning on issues that affect millions of working people.
We set standards and support, develop and connect our members with resources, guidance, events and training.
Our campaign pledge: 
IOSH intends to support the Healthy Workplaces Manage Dangerous substances campaign by: - raising awareness about dangerous substances, especially carcinogens, through joint events, webinars or roundtable discussions encouraging the sharing of practical solutions on how to manage them; - cascading the campaign materials, good practice case studies and resources across our network of 42 IOSH branches and 17 industry sector groups of members, especially those based in 27 of the 28 EU member states, but also reaching the OSH community in Asia Pacific, the Middle East and the Caribbean; - cross-referencing the campaign materials and literature, and sharing free access to our research reports tackling exposure to dangerous substances, as part of the dissemination of our research programme; - promoting the campaign on our website, e-newsletter and social media channels; - and through other collaborative initiatives with partners.
