Welcome to the home page of the Cambridge Occupational Safety Group.

COSG have set up a profile on LinkedIn.  Once you join the group on LinkedIn you can receive reminders of our meetings, participate in discussions with other members of COSG, or with other related organisations (IOSH, RoSPA) and receive bulletins from the HSE.  In fact, why not suggest how we might best use this resource to spread the word about Health and Safety in the local area.

Just click on 'LinkedIn' in the menu bar at the left to go to our group page and join us today.

About Us

The Cambridge Occupational Safety Group was formed in the 1970's by a small number of Health and Safety Professionals.  Its objective is to provide information, networking and support for anyone with an interest in Health and Safety; and we especially aim to help, provide support and offer guidance for small to medium size enterprises who may not employ their own in-house specialists.

The group meets each month from September to June, with a break over the summer holidays and Christmas. A wide range of topics are discussed and the group has been recognised as having an one of the best programmes of talks and activities, winning the Alan Butler Award for Best Overall Programme (for groups of up to 65 members) organised by the National Health & Safety Groups Council (now SGUK) in both 2003 and 2004.

Meetings of the COSG take a variety of formats, with talks by professional speakers from industry, Health and Safety special interest groups and the HSE, visits to sites of interest and networking opportunities. Our meetings are open to anyone with an interest in Health and Safety topics - please see the Programme page for details of where and when our next meeting will take place.

The Group currently has about 50 members representing all types of businesses throughout Cambridgeshire.

Who is the Group for?
All businesses in the county can benefit from sharing their health and safety knowledge and experience. If you are interested in joining us or have a query, please email us on letterbox@cosg.uk.net.
