September 2018

This blog was updated to reflect the latest changes to the course in March 2023.

If you are thinking about doing the IOSH Managing Safely course or have already completed it and are wondering if there is an expiration date on the qualification, read on to find out more. The simple answer to this question is, no. The IOSH Managing Safely certificate does not have an expiry date.

However, IOSH do recommend that you take a refresher course every three years to keep your knowledge up to date.

Why keep your IOSH Managing Safely knowledge up-to-date?

In the fast changing world of work, legislation, management systems, good practice is constantly being updated to reflect and improve on how we work safely and effectively today.

Similar to any safety course, the syllabus of the IOSH Managing Safely certificate will be updated every few years but fundamentally, everybody needs to refresh their knowledge of how to work safely. IOSH Managing Safely will provide you with the necessary skills such as completing a risk assessment, investigating incidents and measuring performance correctly. These are critical mechanisms to sustain a successful and effective health and safety system.

Staff equipped with this knowledge will enable companies to protect their staff, operate to a high performance without disruption caused by accidents and illness.

How do I refresh my knowledge of IOSH Managing Safely?

It is highly recommended by IOSH that you take a short one-day/6 hours IOSH Managing Safely refresher course ideally around three years after taking your full IOSH Managing Safely certificate but it is not mandatory. Ultimately it is always good practice to stay up-to-date with new regulations and systems.

IOSH Managing Safely Refresher refreshes your knowledge of the key parts of the full Managing Safely course reviewing the plan-do-check-act safety and health management system and the importance of leadership.

Companies have the peace of mind in their staff, knowing they have been upskilled and reminded of fundamental HSE practice.
