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.


We have an FAQ section to answer some of your most common questions. If you have a question that you can’t find the answer to, please get in touch.

The IOSH Managing Safely is open to everyone and does not require any prior qualifications or prerequisites. While the course is aimed at those in managerial and supervisory positions, experience in these fields is not necessarily required to take the course.

The IOSH Managing Safely is a great foundation level course providing those in managerial positions with the knowledge they need to ensure their teams are working as safely as possible. This means applicants require no knowledge of health and safety prior to taking the course.

In your workplace, ensure that you put the concepts learned on the course into practice. Sign up to regular e-news, health, safety and environmental bulletins so that you are kept up to date on legislative and topical issues - see the Astutis Blog for useful updates. Plan your next course, the NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Health & Safety, which is an internationally recognised health and safety certificate.

The benefits are plentiful – ranging from a heightened awareness on how to improve health and safety measures generally to greater leadership traits.  Minimising the threat of accidents and illness will of course reap its' own rewards as attendance records improve and workplace injury is reduced. A complete workforce is undoubtedly a more productive one, regardless of size or sector.

Crucially, IOSH Managing Safely is internationally recognised. Employees that successfully complete this IOSH certificate demonstrate a company’s commitment to keeping its workforce safe and thus differentiates them from many competitors. Having IOSH Managing Safely certified staff contributes to companies fulfilling their legal responsibilities.

IOSH recommend a refresher every 3 years.  You will refresh your understanding of the key areas of the IOSH Managing Safely, such as the Plan-Do-Check-Act model, and how to effectively implement this back into the workplace.  You will also be able to build on your existing capabilities.
No, there are no entry requirements for this course.
