This website is a hub for all members of the National Law Enforcement Occupational Safety and Health (LEOSH) Association. If you are not a current member, but work for a law enforcement agency, you can apply for your membership. For a $100 yearly membership to LEOSH, anyone from your law enforcement organization can have access to the members-only section of www.leosh.org. Also, if member law enforcement organizations attend the annual LEOSH conference, this year in Regina, SK, they will save $75 off the cost of registration for each delegate they send to the conference. Lastly, each member organization will have access to other OS&H professionals across Canada working specifically in the law enforcement community.
This website offers members the opportunity to discuss health and safety related topics in our forum. If you are not a member, but have any questions, please use our Contact Form.
