Working with other local networks
Groups are encouraged to make contact with other local health and safety networks to:
- Brief them on their activities (e.g. as a speaker at one of their events)
- Urge them to signpost companies to their local Group
- Invite them to become Group members
- Provide speakers for Group meetings
- Work on joint projects
The following networks may be useful:
