IOSH is the chartered professional body for safety and health in the workplace. It acts as a champion, supporter, adviser, advocate and trainer for those who protect the safety, health and wellbeing of others.
IOSH has over 46,000 members, from over 120 countries. This includes an extensive trainer network including Goldcross.
In 2002 it was awarded a Royal Charter. From 2005, IOSH began awarding Chartered Safety and Health Practitioner status to recognise individual professionalism and commitment to continued learning and development.
In 2011 along with other Health and Safety bodies in the UK, IOSH developed the Occupational Safety & Health Consultants Register (OSHCR) to raise awareness and promote the use of certified health and safety consultants in the workplace.
Over 179,000 delegates attended IOSH training courses in 2016.
