The Infrastructure Health and Safety Association announces new Safety Board
At the annual general meeting this month, the Infrastructure Health and Safety Association (IHSA) announced the membership of its new board of directors. The members come from industries serving the association.
IHSA’s seven sector-specific Advisory Councils nominated the members of
the board. The members of the Advisor Councils were chosen by members
and stakeholders of industries served by IHSA. Both have equal
representations from employers and workers.
The industry experience of board members will help ensure each sector
has resources and service tailored to their unique or specific needs,
explains the press release. They will begin work this month by electing
co-chairs and officers, followed by focusing on eliminating injuries
and illnesses in IHSA’s industries.
The Advisory Councils begin work in early September, where they will
provide advice to the association on how to best respond to specific
industry needs. In addition, they will provide counsel and feedback to
IHSA on its programs, products, and services.
In autumn 2010, IHSA will host sessions to update all members and
stakeholders on its work and will also send out a member satisfaction
survey at the end of 2010.
