Accredited programmes and qualifications
Support career or membership progression.
For higher education institutions and awarding organisations
IOSH improves competency in the OSH profession by accrediting higher education institution (HEI) and awarding organisation (AO) programmes/qualifications so that they meet the academic grade entry requirements for IOSH membership. These standards allow HEIs and AOs to influence workplace safety and health.
Prospective students can be confident that an IOSH-accredited qualification meets their learning and career development objectives. And our professional standards will prove attractive to occupational safety and health (OSH) professionals, employers and educators.
Plus, students and staff on accredited qualifications/programmes will receive continual support from IOSH’s Membership Engagement Team.
While external accreditation is a highly demanding process, it ensures a superior student outcome through the external quality assurance processes and benchmarking.

Accreditation not only strengthened the marketability of our programmes but confirmed that they contained professional standards needed by the practitioner in the field.

We use the European Qualifications Framework as a translation tool between different global national qualifications frameworks. IOSH accredits qualifications/programmes at EQF levels 3-5, and 6 and above, as meeting the academic requirements for Associate/Technical and Graduate membership respectively.
