IOSH Blueprint 1.0

Progress as an OSH professional by identifying gaps in your knowledge

Transforming safety and health across the world

We've launched a new competency framework, which covers the skills, knowledge and behaviours that today's OSH professionals need. You can still use Blueprint 1.0 but please keep in mind that the range of competencies it tests is not mapped to our new framework.

In 2021 we’ll be launching an enhanced suite of practical tools, include Blueprint 2.0, to guide skills and career development. In the meantime, take a look at our CPD courses and books and resources which are aligned to our new competency framework.

IOSH Blueprint 1.0

Do you want to progress in your career as an OSH professional? IOSH Blueprint is the tool for you.

IOSH Blueprint will help you to review your current skills and knowledge and create a development plan to progress in your career as an OSH professional. It can identify significant gaps and the knowledge and training needed to achieve your goals.

IOSH Blueprint has been developed with OSH practitioners, training providers, academics and businesses. The tool takes you step by step through four key areas of skill and knowledge:

  • Engagement and influence
  • Strategy and planning
  • Sustainable business practice
  • Technical capability

Once you've completed your professional development plan, you can upload it to your CPD record easily online. 

For more information, download the IOSH Blueprint leaflet.

What do our members have to say about IOSH Blueprint?

''I used it to set my development objectives at work and have a development discussion with my manager. It's a great tool, whether you're starting out in health and safety or have years of experience.''

Elizabeth Skelton, Chartered Member

''I am using it actively as part of my development plan at work. I think the bug selling point is that it can help you identify an area for development that previously you may not have thought about.''

Steven Osborn, Chartered Fellow
