Identifying policy issues applicable to the health and safety sector and providing guidance to IET members, government and the public.
The IET’s Health and Safety Policy Panel was set up to act as a focus for health and safety issues of relevance to the profession. The policy group is comprised of health and safety experts, practitioners and consultants from industry and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
The objectives of the Health and Safety Panel include:
To achieve these objectives, the panel co-ordinates the IET’s response to health and safety related consultations, maintains and updates the popular health and safety briefing notes and liaises with other health and safety organisations.
The group works with the other major engineering institutions on common health and safety issues through the Inter-Institutional Panel on Health and Safety. The chairman of the policy panel also represents the IET on the board of the Hazards Forum.
