The Humberside Occupational Health and Safety Group

The Humberside Occupational Health and Safety Group

The Humberside Occupational Health and Safety Group are a non-profit making voluntary organisation who are celebrating their 90th year next year having been instigated in 1934 by a small pioneering band of people to reduce accidents and instil the principles of safety as a moral as well as statutory obligation.

Health and Safety has never ranked so highly on everyone’s agenda as recently.

Small organisations with fewer than 6 employees can become members for £20 for the year. Under 250 employees is still only £50 for the year, whilst over 250 is £75.


This enables members to attend bi-monthly meetings if they wish. The Company is the member not the individual so this enables any employees to attend the meetings or seek advice.
