Supporting the Institution, its members and the OSH profession
Our Charter, Code of Conduct and policies
Formed in 1945, IOSH has become leader of a profession that transforms the world of work, making it safer and healthier every day.
Our status is recognised by businesses and governments, and it’s why Chartered Membership of IOSH is recognised worldwide as the hallmark of professional excellence in workplace safety and health.
Most recently, IOSH has expanded what it offers and is now proud to be a regulated awarding organisation (AO) recognised in England by the Office of the Qualifications and Examinations Regulator (Ofqual). We are reviewing plans for our qualifications as well as our policies and procedures. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions – we’d love to hear from you.

IOSH was granted a Royal Charter in 2002. It recognises IOSH’s consistent record of achievement and unique field of competency, not covered by any other professional body.
We guide the OSH profession through our Code of Conduct. It helps our members to demonstrate their value and reliability through adhering to high standards.
Our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion policy ensures we encourage, value, manage and celebrate equality, diversity and inclusion. IOSH continuously reviews and improves its practices in this respect.
