Nigeria shows its passion
Date of Issue: Monday, 2 November, 2015
Stress and psychosocial risks was the topic for the latest IIRSM Nigeria branch meeting held at Lagos in October. There has been a big increase in awareness that psychosocial risk factors can influence employee physical and mental health and organisational performance, making it a popular and interesting topic.
More than 40 members attended the event which included a CPD session and branch programme. Future branch activities were discussed in detail with many ideas put forward by members attending. The Nigeria Branch Committee is very dedicated and passionate about publicising IIRSM and the branch. The group looked into creating a child related programme about safety issues, partnering with corporate and government organisations and discussed the possibilities of a radio programme.
Phillip Pearson, chief executive of IIRSM, expressed his appreciation to the branch after a meeting with Eugene Itua, branch chair, in London this summer. “The IIRSM Nigeria Branch continues to undertake excellent meetings and I’m particularly proud that Eugene and his colleagues have picked up on this challenging topic,” said Phillip. “The institute really values the activity in Nigeria and I look forward to working with the Branch to raise IIRSM’s profile with the relevant regulatory leaders.” The Nigeria Branch has run meetings on a range of topics such as market fire prevention and safety and nanotechnology and are always well attended.
