Consultancy Group

IOSH Consultancy Group

With almost 4,000 members, the IOSH Consultancy Group offers a networking base for health and safety consultants, many of whom work in isolation from fellow safety professionals.

We represent primarily the interests of IOSH members who are either self-employed or directly employed as a consultant. We aim to provide a forum for consultants so they can network with others in a similar situation and further their professional development and business acumen. We also welcome people offering ways to promote best practice in consultancy businesses and in health and safety, as a means of encouraging contact between professional groups.

We stage national networking events throughout the year, focusing on consultants' professional and business interests. We've also contributed to several IOSH guides on consultancy.

Not all our members are full-time consultants. Some have an aspect of consultancy as part of their wider role, while others have joined us to find out more about consultancy with a view to future employment opportunities.

You don't need any specific qualifications to be a member of the Consultancy Group, though we are committed to developing a scheme to clearly determine consultants' competence. We believe it's imperative for the safety profession as a whole, and for consultants in particular, to have a means by which we can demonstrate and others can recognise our areas and level of competence.
