What are the benefits of membership?
It’s actually a great bit of kit to have – Enhancing your career prospects and building your career is central to IOSH membership. The theory of more people building and learning, the safer and healthier we’ll all beholds true here.
You’ll have your own IOSH login – MyIOSH – You can take advantage of their Initial Professional Development (IPD) to Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and networking – sharing experiences on forums. There’s a career hub which helps you to build CV’s, offers practice aptitude tests, rehearse mock interviews and other tips to build your confidence and competence. This feeds into their competency framework built around 3 key areas – Behavioural, Core and Technical. The last thing of note to mention is the opportunity for Mentoring and the IOSH Blueprint which will help you layout your career plan and plot your development objectives. In our opinion, IOSH membership offers you a fantastic toolbox and set of resources to help propel your career and set the standards for health and safety leadership. Happy Hunting.
