IOSH stands for the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health. Here at Project Skills Solutions we offer a range of IOSH courses available at our various training centres, nationwide. But what’s the point of taking an IOSH course if you’re unaware of the benefits right? In today’s blog we will be discussing 5 benefits you will gain from an IOSH course…
1. IOSH Is An Internationally Recognised Certificate

Any member within an organisation is able to take an IOSH course by selecting those which are best suited to your role, as each course is designed for specific roles within an organisation such as;
- General employees
3. Greater Productivity
Having a safe environment will mean there are reduced chances of sickness and accidents from occurring. In fact a study has found developing a safety culture produces greater efficiency and effectiveness for an organisation, as employee productivity is increased by 24% and factory costs are reduced by 20%.
4. Safe Environment = Happy Employees
We have already discussed how implementing good safety practices within a workplace can increase productivity & efficiency. But did you know a safe working environment can also improve the well-being for employees?
Studies have found a relation between happiness at work and employee productivity. Meaning employees who take personal accountability for their safety are more likely to be engaged and happy at work. That is why IOSH courses provide the best practices for health and safety to avoid dangerous incidents from occurring, reducing risks and allowing one to identify hazards in advance.
5. Creating a Safer Environment For Your Workplace
Having a safe working environment is required by law and may prevent a company from paying expensive fines if an incident does occur. Which is why undergoing an IOSH course will not only allow one to gain a professional and recognisable qualification, but a solid understanding of how to create and maintain a safe working environment.
