The IOSH Level 6 Diploma is designed for a new generation of occupational health and safety professionals. You’ll gain the skills needed to make an impact at all levels of your organisation, wherever it operates around the world. If you’re an ambitious professional working towards these types of responsibilities, this qualification can help you achieve your career goals.

What you will learn

You'll learn the skills and knowledge needed to lead on the development of health, safety and wellbeing within workplaces. The focus is on the application of best practice in occupational safety and health to improve business performance.

The IOSH Level 6 Diploma consists of three units.

  1. Advanced OSH management principles in organisations.
  2. OSH integration within an organisation.
  3. Leading and influencing in OSH.

You'll be assessed through three assignments that include a combination of reports and presentations. Tasks are based on your current workplace. This means you and your employer will benefit from your work on the Diploma straight away.

If you don't have a current workplace, it may be possible to base these tasks on a volunteer role or place of study, such as a college or university. Please talk to our customer service team to find out more.
