NEBOSH Chief Operating Officer, Dee Arp, has been elected as the next Vice President of the International Network of Safety and Health Practitioner Organizations (INSHPO).

Dee is a Chartered Safety and Health Practitioner of IOSH and a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Educational Assessors.

INSHPO is the global voice for the occupational safety and health profession and acts as a forum for international collaboration among professional organisations to improve safety and health at work. Taking up the position of Vice President on 1 January 2023, marks the start of a four-year commitment to INSHPO during which Dee will become the President Elect, the President and the President becomes the Immediate Past President respectively.

Dee said: “My mantra at work and in all aspects of life is that we are truly stronger together and this is, of course, at the heart of what INSHPO stands for. The pandemic, amidst the most difficult challenges, connected the world like never before and there are so many innovative and inspirational stories that continue to show that when we come together exceptional things can happen. That strength and purpose ultimately saves lives and keeps people healthy and safe. This is why I joined our profession and why I have stayed in it. To continue to serve it as INSHPO Vice President is my privilege.”

This is the second time a NEBOSH representative has been elected to the INSHPO Board after former Director Strategy, Barry Wilkes, previously held the position of President.
