Reasonable adjustments

IOSH wants to ensure its membership application processes are fair to all. It’s important no member, or potential member, is at a disadvantage. 

The Institution offers reasonable adjustments. These are changes to remove or reduce a disadvantage related to someone’s disability or condition. Allowing extra time for an assessment is one example.
