An understanding of health and safety principles and practices is central for every workplace. This interactive e-learning course leads to the globally recognised Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) qualification 'Passport to Safety' and will provide individuals with thorough knowledge about the essentials of health and safety in the workplace.
IOSH is the biggest health and safety membership organisation in the world and the only chartered body for health and safety professionals. Established for more than 70 years with over 40,000 members across 99 countries, there is no doubt you are receiving quality 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 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 approved card from IOSH will be posted to you by Royal Mail Signed for 1st Class delivery and it should be with you within 3-4 weeks of your completion date.
Please note: it is recommended that learners retake the IOSH Passport to Safety course every three years.

This online course consists of a series of pages in which an instructor will talk learners through the lesson material. Pages may include supporting pictures, graphs, animation or extra sounds to help with the learning where appropriate. Some lessons will include challenges/quizzes to help learners stay engaged and interested in the material. Lessons can be taken in any order and each lesson may be paused and resumed at any stage.
The course is self-paced so learners decide how fast or slow the training goes. There is no deadline for completion but some of our courses have a test at the end to check that learners have understood the material. If the course has a test at the end then learners are required to achieve a 75% pass mark to successfully complete the course. Once learners have passed the test they are awarded a certificate, which can either be downloaded digitally or sent as a physically copy if this option was chosen when purchasing the course.
Upon completion of any of our courses, learners will be able to download a digital certificate from Virtual College and will include the accrediting bodies logo where applicable.
If you have bought the posted certificate option (available on select courses), a high quality, seal embossed, certificate will be sent out by first class post at the beginning of the following working week.
