Acknowledging our Legacy

At the AIHS, we proudly honour the enduring contributions of generations of health and safety professionals who have shaped our organisation. We not only recognise the generations of health and safety members of the Institute but also acknowledge that we now operate throughout Australia, across a wide range of traditional Aboriginal lands in each state and territory. In doing so, we extend our sincere recognition to our indigenous members and humbly pay our respects to the wisdom of elders, both past and present, who guide us in our mission to promote workplace health and safety for all Australians.
