Chartered Member (CMIOSH)

Reach our gold standard

As the only organisation in the world that offers Chartered membership to health and safety practitioners, we can help you achieve the highest professional standards and gain international recognition.

"Chartered status is the ultimate for professionals to have, it’s well respected and recognised as the best.” - Angela Southall, Southall Associates health and safety consultancy

Employers know that when they work with a Chartered Safety and Health Practitioner, they’re dealing with someone who’s at the top of their profession. Our Chartered Members also have the respect of their peers - other professionals know that they’ve been through a rigorous process to become Chartered and have met the high standards of the world's most prestigious body for health and safety professionals. 

Businesses, employers and recruitment consultants are already well used to working with and hiring Chartered professionals. They recognise Chartered status as shorthand for ‘best in class’ and they know they’ll get the highest professional standards from a Chartered individual.

All Chartered Members need to maintain a CPD record. As a Chartered Member of IOSH, you’re entitled to use the designation Chartered Safety and Health Practitioner and the post-nominal letters CMIOSH.

Chartered status will help you:

  • improve your ability to influence decision-makers
  • work on an equal footing with other professionals
  • increase your future employability.
