This year’s World Day for Safety and Health at Work (Thursday 28 April) is based on the theme ‘act together to build a positive safety and health culture’.

In this episode, two members of the IOSH Future Leaders steering group explore where they get their inspiration from as health and safety practitioners, discuss how to develop power skills, and give our listeners some fresh ideas about different places we can all learn from.
Mohamed Mudather Suliman, health and safety consultant and trainer at Samara Training Institute, a leading OSH institute in Oman, explains why the future of the profession relies on knowledge-sharing with the next generation.
Samantha Banfield, workforce safety, health and environment adviser at Network Rail, describes how she went from sociology graduate to rail industry safety adviser via a waitressing stint – and how working towards overcoming impostor syndrome has made her a better OSH professional.
This episode has been taken over by three IOSH Future Leaders: Alpa Vadher, Adam Gawne and Abdulhanan Cheema. They discuss how to be a good safety influencer, and the new standard for psychosocial risks and how it might impact mental health in the workplace.
Cassandra Barrow GradIOSH describes how the cloud of a COVID redundancy had a silver lining in the shape of an exciting new role at the FA, where she is embracing a broad range of OSH challenges while working to promote diversity and inclusion.
