Safety and Health for Business

Top-performing businesses increasingly appreciate that a more strategic, proactive approach to workplace safety and health delivers productivity benefits and improved profitability. Our new Ofqual-regulated IOSH qualification has been created to help managers and supervisors take the next step when it comes to influencing safety culture in their organisations.

Developed with input from leading businesses and thought-leaders across key sectors and in collaboration with NCFE, no other safety and health qualification has such business-focused content. With an emphasis on delivering tangible benefits the course takes a strategic and business focused approach to safety and health.

This course addresses current issues demanded by employers, including how to manage uncertainty and adapt to long-term strategic megatrends affecting businesses, there is a strong focus on health and wellbeing, including health hazards, health assessment, global health trends, and good practice.
