The Structure of the Forum

The Hazards Forum is a registered charity and its affairs are managed by an Executive Committee who are the charity trustees.  Additionally, individuals are coopted to the Committee with observers from The Royal Society, The Royal Academy of Engineering and the Health and Safety Executive being welcomed also.

The Committee is responsible for the management and finances of the Forum, for its policies and the direction of its overall operation. It reports annually to the Annual General Meeting, usually held in March of each year.  From time to time working groups are set up to look at particular issues relating to hazard and risk.

The Executive Committee set up a Programme Advisory Committee to assist it in running a programme of events commensurate with the needs of its Members and the public in general, although this it has not been active recently and is currently being reviewed as the Executive Committee has adopted this role.

There are also various types of Membership of the Hazards Forum ranging from individuals to corporate affiliates.
