Who we are

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 admin@ioshao.com if you have any questions – we’d love to hear from you.
