What is IOSH?

The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) is a membership organisation and authority on promoting best practice in safety within the workplace. Set up in 1945, IOSH is the world’s largest chartered health and safety membership organisation with 100,000 people looking to become IOSH certified every single year. 

IOSH is best known for developing multiple training courses in health and safety, which teaches learners how to identify risks and promote workplace health and safety. IOSH conducts relevant research and lobbies the government on key issues, making them one of the most knowledgeable and foremost leaders in the industry.

IOSH training courses are suitable for people of all levels, in any sector and organisation. They are aimed at those who don’t necessarily have a health and safety role but do have a part to play in the management of health and safety. They provide staff with the essential knowledge on how to manage health, safety and wellbeing.

IOSH training offers individuals the opportunity to enhance their health and safety knowledge and practice safe working and management.

Accredited v Non-Accredited

Why take an IOSH qualification?

Gaining an IOSH qualification is popular for a reason - because they raise an awareness of all employees' health and safety responsibilities at any level which can help develop a positive culture in the workplace. All IOSH courses provide a greater understanding of what makes a safe and healthy workplace. This brings great company and individual benefits. 

It can improve productivity and reduce down time and business costs. Quite often, taking on additional courses also provides staff something to focus on and take as their own. Providing this kind of opportunity will enhance staff motivation and happiness, which is reason enough to get your staff certified.

There are of course, similar non-accredited certifications available for your staff. However, the benefits of choosing an IOSH accredited course over a non-accredited alternative are significant.

Non-accredited courses are known as a form of non-formal learning and in most cases, will not lead to formal certification. While in many cases this isn’t detrimental, having your staff certified with the biggest health and safety membership organisation in the world will have significant benefits. IOSH is widely recognised all over the world. It also means you are assured that your staff are equipped to comply with health and safety legislation.

IOSH (Institution of Occupational Safety and Health) courses are all great, and they're all equally valid. The main difference between them is their duration—the longer the course, the more comprehensive it'll be.

The most popular IOSH course is IOSH Managing Safely. It's a 16-24 hour course that covers everything from health and safety law to risk management theory and practices. The IOSH Managing Safely Course is a great starting point for anyone who wants to get into the field of safety management or just needs a refresher on what they need to know about workplace safety.
