The IOSH is a non-profit organization founded in 1945 which now has 44,000 members in more than 120 countries. From 1945 to 1953, it was a department of the RoSPA. Its goal is to promote OSH via training, and aid for funding research projects which could be useful for OSH policies and their implementation.
