Our resources

We provide free resources that cover all areas of occupational health and safety.

Our books and resources offer clear and accessible information on a variety of subjects relevant to the world of work. The tools provide either operational or strategic corporate guidance on a range of health and safety issues.

All books and resources

The Occupational Health Toolkit brings together free information, guidance, factsheets, case studies and much more to help you tackle occupational health problems.

Socio-economic and industrial developments have seen a change in the way we work. In some parts of the world this means more people working in services and fewer in industry. At the same time our understanding of complex health issues has grown, particularly around mental ill health. We have been actively engaged in looking at psychosocial risks.

Also, we’ve developed an OSH research database to make it even easier for you to access resources in the form of papers, articles, presentations and reports. The site, OSH research community, features comprehensive filtering tools, a secure and simple registration process and a student area to showcase work carried out in an undergraduate or postgraduate role.


Policy and Practice in Health and Safety

IOSH previously published Policy and Practice in Health and Safety (PPHS). However, having reviewed the contribution all our publications make to our WORK 2022 strategy, we took the decision to discontinue this journal. Volume 2, 2020 was therefore the last issue of PPHS in its current form. We'll continue to support and launch actionable research through our other channels and will announce future plans for the journal, to complement the organisation’s wider offering of resources and research, in due course. In the meantime, all the valuable research published in PPHS since 2003 will be absorbed into our learning resources, to support the greatly enhanced Continuing Professional Development (CPD) scheme which will go live in 2021.
