The sector's health and safety committee last month discussed the first year objectives of the new sector health, safety and wellbeing strategy.USHA is at the heart of many of the objectives and has happily put itself forward as lead for many.
It's great to witness the many associations that make up the committee's membership so committed to delivering the strategy. USHA will be there to work alongside which really does capture one of the main areas I targeted over my tenure as your chairperson - greater and meaningful collaboration.
At the meeting it was so pleasing to receive praise from many for a successful October seminar. As we move forward that praise only adds to the much feedback that continues to fully justify the decision we took with the theme and an area of work we feel USHA will certainly add significant value to.
This newsletter captures the many exciting activities, both centrally and amongst our members, that are already in place for 2017. I'm sure you take much from those you get involved with.
I'm now moving into the 'final furlong' as your chairperson. It's been a true honour however without those who give up their time to serve on the executive the success of the association would not be possible. I owe the current executive and those before massive gratitude.
Please do have an enjoyable Christmas and wishing you all the best for the New Year.
