Upgrade your membership

Progress to the next membership level

IOSH membership is recognised worldwide as the benchmark for professional safety and health excellence

As your knowledge and skills develop as an OSH professional, you want to be able to show employers that you’re highly skilled and dedicated to the profession.

If you’ve gained a new qualification that we accredit or you now have more experience in the field, you could be eligible to move up to the next membership level. The qualifications and experience needed for each category are displayed below. Alternatively, you can find out more on our membership categories page.

How do I upgrade to the next membership level?

If you know you're eligible to change categories, or you're not sure and would like us to check for you, please send a copy of your CV to our Professional Development team explaining your health and safety experience, along with your certificates for any relevant qualifications. Please do not send us original documents – good quality copies are acceptable. We will let you know the outcome within six working weeks of receipt.
