Level 6 Diploma in Occupational Safety and Health
Created specifically for full-time managers and practitioners with specific responsibility for health and safety culture. An essential step towards Grad IOSH membership.
Paper-based only £470.00 (not offered online, prices are excluding VAT).
The Level 6 Diploma in Occupational Safety and Health is particularly important because employers have an ethical and legal obligation to keep their people healthy and safe. It covers health and safety management systems, hazards and risks associated with workplace activities, control strategies for managing health and safety risks, and reporting and investigating health and safety risks.
With good health and safety management, the vast majority of occupational accidents and incidents of ill-health are avoidable. This depends on clearly communicated expert advice from appropriately qualified practitioners. This internationally-recognised, professional qualification helps managers and practitioners with specific responsibility for health and safety culture to develop a business case for investment in health and safety.
The qualification meets the requirement for graduate membership of the Institution (Grad IOSH). Following the successful completion of a period of initial professional development, a graduate member may apply for chartered status (CMIOSH). Holders of the Diploma may also apply for full membership of the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM).
The Level 6 Diploma in Occupational Safety and Health is offered as part of the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF).
