Additional Information

Invest in the future

 The Ofqual-regulated Level 3 Certificate in Safety and Health for Business has been developed by IOSH in collaboration with awarding body NCFE. It is cost-effective, time-efficient, regulated and highly relevant for businesses. 

Qualification outline and assessments

 Each of the three units is assessed in a unique, more flexible way designed to test a range of soft skills vital to both delegates and their employers. 

Unit 01 

Safety and health management in an organisation Focused on the value of workplace health and well-being, including health hazards, safety hazards, health assessment, global trends and good practice, including CPD. 


Delegates develop and write a business case to implement an enhanced safety and health management system within an organisation, putting theory into practice in a way relevant to all sectors, organisations and workplaces. 

Unit 02 

How to influence a safety and health culture within an organisation Going beyond compliance, this unit gives insights into and teaches ways of delivering positive safety culture change, tackling behavioural and operational challenges to boost business performance and strengthen corporate governance. 


Delegates complete a project researching organisational health and safety culture, using primary and secondary research methods to collect data. They produce a report evaluating the existing safety culture and recommending an improvement plan. 

Unit 03 

A strategic, business-focused approach to safety and health This unit explores organisations, their functions and how to effectively influence success. This includes topics such as accountability, ethics, compliance, managing uncertainty, and other long-term strategic mega-trends affecting modern business. 


The delegate analyses the main functions and aims of an organisation, including how strategic drivers affect its operation, then develops and delivers a presentation they could use to 


This factsheet gives further essential information about the new IOSH qualification.  

It tells you more about the application and approvals process, support provided for trainers, delegate pre-requisites and recognition of prior learning, the likely amount of study time required, resources for self-study, and assessment processes and tasks. 


How much self-study time is a learner likely to spend?  

The total qualification time is 121 hours, comprising: -  

  • 60 guided learning hours; and -  
  • 61 hours of self-study time, which includes time for completing the assessment tasks. 

The amount of time allocated per unit is as follows: -  

  • Unit 1: 24 hours guided learning, 29 hours self-study -  
  • Unit 2: 18 hours guided learning, 16 hours self-study -  
  • Unit 3: 18 hours guided learning, 16 hours self-study. 

What is involved in the learner’s self-study?  

Self-study time is directed by, but not under the immediate guidance or supervision of, a trainer, lecturer, supervisor, tutor or other appropriate provider of education or training. 

It builds on the IOSH resources provided in the guided learning hours, so in addition to the course lectures that take place within those guided learning hours (which are based on detailed trainer notes and lesson plans), all learners will receive: -  

  • a text book -  
  • detailed guidance on what they are required to undertake as self-study, including the assessment tasks -  
  • links to relevant IOSH resources that can be used throughout the course of study. 
  • Time to recap on the learner’s self-study is built into the guided learning hours for each unit. 

How are the learners assessed?  

Learner assessment takes a portfolio-based approach which means there is no need to attend an examination centre and sit an exam. 

For each of the three units in IOSH Safety and Health for Business, there is a mandatory assessment task for each learner to complete individually. 

Each assessment task can be contextualised by the training provider to suit the needs of the learners and has been purposely designed to give learners the opportunity to evidence the required learning outcomes and assessment criteria. The tasks are as follows: 

Unit 01  

Write a business case (of up to 2000 words) to recommend the introduction or improvement of an Occupational Safety and Health Management System for an organisation of their choice 

Unit 02  

Complete a research project into organisational safety and health culture, using both primary and secondary research methods. Then present a report evaluating the existing safety culture on an organisation with a plan for improvement. 

Unit 03  

Choose an element of an organisation’s value chain, understand its strategic drivers, main functions and the effect of safety and health within it. Look into the value safety and health can create for the organisation and present findings in a recorded presentation. 

Time allocation for completing each of these three assessment tasks is taken from the learner’s self-study time allowance. 

Assessments are marked by the IOSH Centre. They are pass or fail assessments. Candidates will be assessed on the degree to which they meet the learning outcomes and assessment criteria. 

This portfolio-based approach to the assessment will help the learners develop appropriate techniques required by industry, such as writing a business case, carrying out 

Delegate pre-requisites
