All our volunteers are required to sign a volunteer agreement. This agreement has been signed by IOSH too, demonstrating our commitment to our volunteers and we ask the same in return. The code of behaviour is the foundation of this agreement. Our code of behaviour says what is expected of our volunteers. It provides guidance on upholding our values and outlines what you can expect from IOSH.
