IOSH data protection


IOSH data protection and privacy statement

In accordance with Section 4 of the Data Protection Act 1998 and the IOSH data protection policy, any personal data you give us will be used in connection with your contract with us and so that we can provide you with the agreed services.

As a member of IOSH, you’re agreeing to let us contact the universities or colleges where you gained your qualifications so that we can verify the content and standards of the courses you followed, if necessary.

To provide you with membership services, we’ll use your data to:

  • let you know about member benefits and ask for your views
  • administer your membership record
  • provide details of your membership category and length of membership to prospective employers who ask us for this information
  • send you governance, financial and other documentation
  • send you mail from our subsidiary, IOSH Services Limited.

From time to time, we use and pass limited personal information to contracted third party agents to perform specific tasks on our behalf (eg, to promote and run our annual conference and to publish and mail ioshmagazine).

We will also send you information about other health and safety services and products from IOSH and contracted agents. If you’d rather not receive this information, you can choose how you receive information from us. Once you've registered with our site, just log in and click 'Update my details', then edit your mailing preferences.
