And you can improve your professional knowledge and find answers to real-world workplace issues with our safety and health courses.

OSH as a fundamental principle and right
A safe and healthy workplace is recognised by the International Labour Organization (ILO) as a fundamental principle and right at work. We support this human-rights based approach to occupational safety and health. Find out more about what this means for workers, employers and governments.
Our vision is a safe and healthy world of work but we can't achieve it without the help of our thriving global community. That includes over 50,000 global members, our dedicated volunteers, experienced training partners and the academics who support our research and helps us to set national and international standards.
We also collaborate with global and regional partners to improve occupational safety and health around the world.
We help businesses make the most of their investment in safety and health. Our expert team at IOSH for Business is here to help with all your occupational safety and health needs.
