Safety and Health Practitioner Magazine

Official Description  

“The Safety & Health Practitioner magazine (SHP) is the official magazine of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH). SHP covers the latest health and safety prosecutions + fines, legislative developments, government decisions, reports and research, and contains all the latest top health and safety jobs.

The SHP Magazine app is an interactive version of the print edition, which allows you to bookmark and print pages, zoom, search for keywords, click on live links, and view embedded video/audio (when available). You can also search through back issues of SHP dating back to August 2010.”1

Thumbs Down

  • registration is required
  • the description says you can “search for keywords”, we  did not find any such search capability
  • while some content is general in nature and would have universal appeal, most is specific to safety and health regulations/practices in the United Kingdom (U.K.)
