COHPA has been active politically to represent the interests of commercial OH providers to Dame Carol Black, Government and key bodies in the industry. We have met with Dame Carol and Ministers from DWP /senior HSE (etc) to put our views acros about the future of OH. We hold seats on Dame Carol's select committee for OH and the Council for Work and Health.
To support membership we continue to organise block discounts for insurance, recruitment services, training and consumables. The Board has set up working groups, each led by a Director, with an end goal to make membership pay for itself.
We will continue to offer members free seminars on subjects of interest. We will repeat our popular series on VAT and OH services.
Overall, COHPA is making good progress in getting the views of the commercial providers to a higher level, we are instrumental in determining the future for our industry. We do need to be able to tell ministers and others that we represent as many OH providers as possible, in order to demonstrate our credibility. We also need members to take part in the activities we are pursuing and add their influence to the association. Therefore, your membership would be important, valued, and give your company a chance to influence the future developments in OH.
