IOSH is one of the world's leaders in health and safety training – more than 160,000 people take one of our courses every year.
We work with a range of organisations (national and international) to raise awareness and standards, develop training for schools and businesses, and run campaigns that are relevant to millions of working people. As well as lobbying governments on policy and law, we accredit qualifications for our members, give guidance, develop resources and run courses and events to help organisations in their work.
IOSH became a founder member of Great Britain Health and Wellbeing Week because promoting and ensuring good health at work is at our core. The issue is not just about accidents and physical injuries; but also about protecting employees’ health and wellbeing. It's important to understand that illness, as a result of work activity, is just as serious as an accident. The HWB week campaign puts the spotlight on health and supports employers raising the issue amongst their workforce, supply chains and wider communities.
