Origin of IOSM
The Institute of Safety Management had its origins in the South African Institute of Industrial Safety Officers which was established in 1952.
Its members cover a wide field of SHE disciplines which includes Occupational Injury and Accident Prevention, Loss Control, Fire Defence, Elements of Security, Ergonomics, Risk Management, Occupational Hygiene, as well as a comprehensive range of management skills.
The Institute is dedicated to the upgrading of the professional skills of its members and, as such, promotes various training courses throughout Southern Africa. Seminars on a wide range of loss control activities are run and briefs on specific topics are made available. All members receive a copy of ‘National Safety & Occupational Hygiene’, which not only gives current news regarding the Institute, but also carries articles of general interest in the fields of SHE management.
Minimum standards of competence have been established and a Professional Register of Practitioners is available in order that the technical skills and competence of persons practising in the field may be recorded, assessed and/or verified.
As well as being involved in training, the Institute is also concerned with analysing the ongoing training needs and identifying areas for improvement in safety education and upgrading technical competence. It maintains reciprocal membership arrangements with sister organisations in Europe, UK and the USA.
