Allan St. John Holt Memorial Lecture

Allan St. John Holt, who died on 3 May 2007, devoted his life to improving the safety and health of people at work. He made a massive contribution to the professionalisation of the subject. As an original thinker he was passionate, determined, principled, and iconoclastic. He gave great encouragement to colleagues, helping many to move forward and expand their knowledge and contributions to occupational safety and health.

RoSPA together with the Royal Mail Group host an annual memorial lecture, as a fitting way of commemorating his life and work. “To commemorate Allan’s life we organise a lecture annually to provide a platform for challenge and debate and to stimulate fresh thinking about how to further reduce work related accidents and ill health.”
