Experienced, practicing professionals demonstrating a depth and breadth of skills, knowledge and experience (SKE) in design and construction health and safety risk management. 



Is this for me?

What is the annual cost?

There is a £150 initial application fee.  Once all processes for membership have been completed you will be invited to become a Member and pay the annual subscription fee due currently £220.00.
