Guernsey Occupational Safety & Health Association (GOSHA) was established in November 2004, is a not for profit, friendly association run by volunteers, and we use all our resources to achieve our vision.

We aim to raise awareness for:

  • Businesses
  • Charities and
  • other Organisations

in Guernsey of their duties under the Health and Safety at Work (General) (Guernsey) Ordinance 1987, and develop best practice to help reduce risk, prevent injuries and promote health and well-being in the workplace for:

  • Employees
  • Customers and visitors and
  • the public in general

All work places present a risk of harm or work related ill-health, but, by taking a few sensible precautions, these harmful risks can be reduced, controlled, and, sometimes, eliminated.

Together we can make Guernsey businesses a safer workplace

We aim to annually organise:

  • Health & safety week in January – breakfast presentations (usually 3)
  • 5 expert speakers each year with dinner and an opportunity for further learning.
  • An annual dinner with health & safety awards
  • Newsletters
  • Helpful website
  • Site visits – at least one each year
  • Briefings for businesses/charities in Guernsey, for example, asbestos awareness and risk assessment

Why should you join

Health and Safety is important because it protects the well-being of employers, visitors and customers. Looking after Health and Safety makes good business sense. Workplaces which neglect health and safety risk prosecution, may lose staff, and may increase costs and reduce profitability.
