The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) is the Chartered body for health and safety professionals. With more than 39,000 individual members, we’re the biggest professional health and safety organisation in the world. We’re committed to cutting down the number of people who die or are made ill by what they do for a living. We’re the voice of the profession, and lobby governments on policy and law. We accredit qualifications for our members, give guidance, develop resources and run courses and events to help them in their work. We recognize that health and safety isn’t just down to the experts. We work with a range of organizations to raise awareness –and standards. And we develop training for schools and businesses, and run campaigns that are relevant to millions of working people. IOSH was founded in 1945 and is a registered charity.
