New president for IOSH

14th November 2013 | Health and Safety Signs

Posted by Nicole Stevens

A self-employed risk engineer from Ipswich has become the next in line to be president of the world’s largest professional health and safety organisation.

The 42 year old Ian Harper will assume the position of president of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) in November 2014.

Mr Harper has been a member of IOSH for the last 15 years, and is glad to be able to give something back to the organisation, and the sector.

IOSH is the chartered body for health and safety professionals. It sets standards and provides resources and training on topics as varied as carbon monoxide detection and safety signage.

In his spare time, Mr Harper breeds Hebridean sheep and keeps bees, which he uses to pollinate his orchard.

Mr Harper said: “In my opinion a safety professional’s role is to make business better and more efficient – I hope that during my time in a presidential role for the Institution, I can continue to do just this, but on a much larger scale.”ADNFCR-2754-ID-801660509-ADNFCR
