Marsh McLennan has become an IIRSM partner to enhance risk-based safety management activities

Marsh McLennan has become an IIRSM partner to enhance risk-based safety management activities and support its journey to build a global health and safety community.

Marsh McLennan is the world’s leading professional services firm in the areas of risk, strategy and people. With more than 85,000 staff and clients in 130 countries, it helps corporate and public sector leaders navigate an increasingly dynamic environment through four businesses – Marsh, Guy Carpenter, Mercer and Oliver Wyman. 

IIRSM Fellow Gary Eastham, MMC Global Director of Health and Safety, said: “I have been working to implement a global health and safety strategy based on a central model that provides the detail needed to support compliance with regional legislation. 

“We have a growing team, with health and safety managers in Latin America, the Pacific and UK and Ireland, who will benefit from professional membership of IIRSM, as well as opportunities for affiliate memberships in Africa, Europe and other areas of our business.

“Becoming a partner of IIRSM will help build competence and confidence in colleagues who understand health and safety but who can further develop their risk management skills. Being part of the IIRSM community also gives my team access to the networks and knowledge to manage new and emerging risks, to find solutions to problems, as well as the opportunity for me personally to give something back through offering guidance and mentoring as a new Fellow.”

IIRSM is a UK-based professional membership organisation with a global footprint. We help individuals and organisations around the world to feel safe, supported and empowered to identify and manage risks, protecting their environments and lives.

We aim to drive the holistic evolution of risk management in organisations across the globe, educating and protecting their people through our unique communities. We work together – providing training, knowledge sharing and networks – to support risk and safety professionals. 

IIRSM Chief Executive Phillip Pearson said: “I'm delighted that Marsh McLennan has partnered with IIRSM. We look forward to building this into a long and fruitful relationship for both organisations.”
