As an independent organisation we are free to call for new measures to reduce risks and improve protections for people and the environment.

Our engagement with politicians and civil society is crucial for us to influence health, safety and environmental law and policy.
Q: How do we engage?
A: We engage on multiple channels. We regularly meet members, the regulator and other stakeholders to discuss issues and start new relationships, including through our Sector Interest Groups and at seminars and events.
