Get your course IOSH approved

Improve your course with the IOSH brand

If you are a training provider, you can apply to get your course approved by IOSH. As well as helping you improve your existing course, we bring the reputational boost of the IOSH brand – which stands for excellence, high-quality standards and thought leadership in safety and health.

How it works

We will work closely with you and provide step-by-step guidance to get IOSH approval for your materials. We can help whether you're exploring an initial idea or want approval for a course you're already delivering. 


Our Learning Development Officers will ensure your courses:

  • include the most up-to-date, relevant health and safety information
  • are pitched at the appropriate level for your delegates
  • provide professional training materials 
  • meet the highest standards for trainer competence and course quality
  • provide unrivalled opportunities for your organisation’s growth and development.

"We really liked the idea of IOSH approval to set our course apart from the masses of safety and health training out there."


Who we work with

  • Existing IOSH training providers.
  • Companies wanting approval for their health and safety portfolio.
  • Businesses seeking the IOSH stamp on their in-house training programmes.
