Australian Secretary General for APOSHO

The NSCA Foundation has announced that Bernie Doyle, President and Chair of the NSCA Foundation, will be taking over the role of Secretary General, Asia-Pacific Occupational Safety and Health Organization (APOSHO).

Formed in 1985, APOSHO is an international body composed of non-profit professional organisations devoted to the prevention of occupational accidents and diseases. Doyle’s appointment was recognised at the APOSHO 2018 Annual General Meeting, following the APOSHO 33 conference hosted by IOSH in Hong Kong, 4–5 December 2018, succeeding Chi-Ming Law who had held the position for eight years.

Said to be the first Australian-based Secretary General in APOSHO’s history, Doyle’s involvement with APOSHO dates back a number of years through his long-term role with the NSCA (now NSCA Foundation). He is said to be looking forward to leading APOSHO as it continues to collaborate with its influential and extensive member base.
