Our main aim is to help improve standards of Health and Safety and the Environment at work.
We have a programme of monthly meetings and a staffed office and resources centre.
We are also involved in promoting health and safety 'behind the scenes' including giving advice, particularly to smaller organisations and working with the HSE and other enforcing organisations.
For more information please contact the BHSEA Secretary:
