2 Jan 2013
During 2012 the Environment Group and the Health and Safety Group committees have been in discussion relating to a merger of the two groups to form a single Environment Health and Safety Group. Both committees have given their unanimous approval at recent committee meetings for this merger to complete. The proposal has also been approved by the Membership Affairs Committee and the Board of Trustees.
The merger will take effect from January 2013. The merger is a reflection of how many organisations manage issues relating to health, safety and the environment. The majority of organisations consider issues in any one of these areas under one remit.
The newly merged committee will be able to maximise their resources, in particular the time of the very active committee members, and provide organisational efficiencies for the Society. All external relationships will be retained by both groups. The committee plans to develop its use of electronic communications, initially with the introduction of a web forum for the combined group.
If you are interested in joining the committee, please contact the chairman Steve Waller at firstname.lastname@example.org. Being on the committee will enable you to develop your network of contacts and gain experiences to enhance your CV while contributing to the work and aims of the Society.
