A statement issued on behalf of the Board of the Occupational Safety and Health Consultants Register Ltd (OSHCR)

Wednesday, 24 April 2019

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has conducted research that has confirmed the need for businesses of all sizes and types to gain access to proportionate, and trusted, consultancy advice for occupational safety and health.

The Board of OSHCR, which includes representatives from the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM), Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH), British Safety Council and NEBOSH amongst others, has reviewed the research and confirmed their support for its findings. Both the HSE and Board of OSHCR have subsequently confirmed their commitment to the register’s future.

A strategic review of the register is now under way and this will include an assessment of the skills, knowledge and behaviours required of consultants to ensure the integrity of the register and the quality of advice businesses can access, and options to both increase awareness of the register amongst businesses and enhance the customer service offered to consultants who apply to be included on the register.

OSHCR is also recruiting for a new Chair to lead the Board for a term of three years from July 2019. Full details of this post and how to apply can be found here: https://www.linkedin.com/jobs/view/1235992986/
