How IOSH Blueprint works

On this page you can find out about our Blueprint package along with updates and FAQs.

☑ Self-assessment tool 

Assessing your capability is the first step on your enhanced professional journey.

The Blueprint self-assessment tool is mapped to our competency framework, which covers all the skills, knowledge and behaviours needed to excel in your OSH career. You’ll complete a self-assessment for each of the three competency areas – technical, core and behavioural. It’s easy to do – just follow the instructions on screen. This will help you identify your strengths along with areas for improvement.

While the process can take up to two hours, remember that it is an investment yourself. We recommend you take a considered, well-thought-out approach to your self-assessment and set time aside so you can give it your full focus.

The next step is to build your personal development plan (PDP) based on the results of your self-assessment, career stage and/or aspirations. You may want to maintain existing skills, develop new ones or both.

 CPD resources 

To support your learning and development, we provide more than 950 CPD resources mapped to the competency framework. Download, digest and refer to them at any time.  

You can also access technical resources, written by IOSH’s safety and health experts, and core and behavioural resources, provided by our specialist partners.

Simply click on your different development areas in your PDP to discover all the IOSH CPD resources that can help you.

 CPD record 

Remaining CPD compliant ensures you keep pace with the evolving demands of the OSH profession and is mandatory for Technical, Graduate and Chartered Members and Chartered Fellows. But we recommend CPD as good practice for our Affiliate and Student Members too.

You can record your CPD in Blueprint, to reflect on what you have learnt and achieved. You can easily switch between the CPD resources and your CPD record to ensure you are recording your learning as you go along. It also directly links to your PDP, so you can track your progress. 

 IOSH Ethical Practice in OSH e-learning and assessment  

Ethical practice is extremely important in ensuring public trust and upholding the reputation of our profession. The new learning material provides you with up-to-date content on ethical considerations that affect organisations and the OSH profession in the widest sense.  

The assessment is available to all members. This is mandatory for Chartered Members and Chartered Fellows, as we expect them to lead the profession by demonstrating the highest standards of professional conduct at work and in their dealings with the public. But we encourage all members to do this and keep their knowledge current. And it can count towards CPD.

You spoke, we listened

We value feedback from all our members. Based on your requests, you can now:

• export your CPD record
• add up to five ‘free type’ PDP areas that are not competency framework-specific – for example, an OSH specialist in the oil/gas area, academia, or consultant, can add sector-specific areas for CPD
• revisit individual competencies in the self-assessment rather than having to complete the whole exercise again.

Please note this new and enhanced Blueprint replaces the original version, which is no longer accessible to members.

Blueprint FAQs

Why do you feel the need to introduce an IOSH Ethical Practice in OSH e-learning and assessment when ethics are already covered in the Code of Conduct?

The IOSH Code of Conduct commits members to the IOSH vision for a world of work that is safe, healthy and sustainable. It provides an ethical foundation for members working towards this vision. The IOSH Ethical Practice in OSH assessment, which is supported by e-learning, will provide members with up-to-date and relevant content on ethical considerations that affect organisations and the OSH profession in the widest sense. 

Will I have to pay for the IOSH Ethical Practice in OSH e-learning and assessment?

No, the IOSH Ethical Practice in OSH e-learning and assessment will be free of charge as part of our CPD package. This can also be counted towards your CPD.

Am I able to download the answers I have given in my self-assessment?

No, you are not able to download the self-assessment content, your statement choices, or your multiple-choice responses. However, the personal development plan (PDP) is an output based on the items you selected within the self-assessment. This can be downloaded from Blueprint.
