Our influence

IOSH is an influential organisation and we represent our profession in influencing decision-makers and informing the policy-making process in many aspects of safety, health and wellbeing at work.


Governments and other bodies also regularly consult IOSH on policy issues relating to occupational safety and health. To view our consultation responses, visit our consultations page.

Our policy positions

IOSH develops policy positions through research and by consulting our members, who understand the issues that affect peoples safety, health and wellbeing in the workplace. We use our policy positions to inform our influencing activity. To find out more, visit our policy positions page.
