An understanding of health and safety principles and practices is central for every workplace. This interactive e-learning course leads to the globally recognised IOSH qualification 'Passport to Safety' and will provide individuals with thorough knowledge about the essentials of health and safety.

IOSH are the biggest health and safety membership organisation in the world and the only chartered body for H&S professionals. Established for more than 70 years with over 40,000 members across 99 countries, there is no doubt you are receiving quality training.

Who would benefit from this training?

Passport to Safety is suitable for people at any level, in any sector, needing a grounding in the essentials of health and safety. It is especially useful for Contractors and multi-site workers who prefer a card to a certificate, as it’s more handy and portable.

Individuals will benefit by gaining a nationally recognised certificate in health and safety training that meets government's guidelines and is a 100 per cent match to the Health and Safety Executive's 'passport' syllabus.

On completion of this course you will receive a confirmation email that you have successfully completed your training. The accredited card from the Institution of Occupational and Health (IOSH) will be posted to you by Royal Mail Signed for 1st Class delivery and it should be with you within 2-3 weeks of your completion date.

Please note: it is recommended that learners retake the IOSH Passport to Safety course every three years.


Lesson Plan


IOSH Passport to Safety is split into five interactive modules:

  • An introduction to working safely; the principles of why working safely is important.
  • Defining hazard and risk; recognising risks in the workplace and understanding the application of risk assessments.
  • Identifying common hazards; understanding how hazards arise and how to prevent them.
  • Improving safety performance; understanding how systems and processes can be put in place to improve safety performance and how these relate to all levels of the workforce.
  • Protecting our environment; how organisations and individuals can get involved in reducing environmental impacts.




Upon completion of the e-learning material, you must sit an online assessment. The assessment consists of 21 multiple choice questions and three hazard spotting exercises. Candidates who successfully complete the assessments will be sent an accredited card from the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH).

The cards are a simple way to demonstrate that you value health and safety. The cards can be used:

  • to show the standard and level of training
  • as an identification card
  • as a site card


Security features including expiry date, photo, hologram and signature mean the cards are more tamper and fraud proof than a certificate.
