Show Notes

Standards affect all of us every day, wherever we go, whatever we do. By defining good practice, they help people, organizations, the economy and society to do things better. For all sorts of things. From nanotechnology to Net Zero guidance.

And these standards are made by standards-makers – tens of thousands of people from around the world - who get together to agree good practice to the way things are made and done. All helping to make life easier, safer, and more enjoyable.

In this episode Matthew speaks to Martin Cottam, a standards-maker in the field of occupational health and safety management.

Martin describes his motivations for getting and staying involved in standards, the impact it’s had on his career, and his proudest standards-making moments.
