Welcome to the MOHSG website!
The Maurice Adamson Award for service to their local Group was awarded to Mike Nixon at the Safety Groups UK Annual Awards Luncheon on 21 January 2013 in the House of Lords.
Roger Bibbings, Occupational Safety Adviser for RoSPA and Secretary of Safety Groups UK, on announcing the award said:
He [Mike Nixon] has been a member of the Manchester Group for more than 20 years and its treasurer since 1995. He was nominated by them for always being at the forefront of organising events, supporting fellow members and trying to obtain the best investments to maximise funds.
His recent achievement was to set up the NEBOSH Scholarship Awards for his Group to improve standards of health, safety and welfare within a workplace. It allows a candidate from a small company or a self-funded individual to receive ultimately free training for the award of the NEBOSH National General Certificate or the NEBOSH Construction Certificate
The Committee extend their congratulations to Mike for his untiring efforts on behalf of the Group for many years.
The Manchester Occupational Health and Safety Group (MOHSG) forms part of a voluntary Health and Safety Organisation which stretches across the whole of the UK. The group operates in the Greater Manchester area, promoting health and safety matters via regular meetings, seminars, video presentations and the publication of reports.
The Manchester Group objectives are: "to promote interest in the provision of education, relating to health and safety at work; to maintain and develop the interest of members, their employers and employees regarding accident prevention; to encourage the establishment of active and efficient safety organisations in all places of work and to study the causes of accidents and related hazards, especially those reported by members, with the objective of finding effective means of preventing recurrence".
