All about the Women in Health and Safety network

Heather Beach in partnership with SHP, works with a committee to determine the best direction for the network and there are currently the following workstreams:


As well as running flagship events determined by the committee, this workstream also facilitates interested parties to run their own events. See below to register for any of our existing events. If you are interested in running an event under the aegis of Women in Health and Safety, please complete the form here.


This workstream collaborates with other mentoring initiatives within health and safety to provide a conduit for members looking to be mentored or to support a mentee. There are regular events held – please see below for upcoming dates.
