Affiliate Member

First step to success

You’ll join IOSH as an Affiliate Member with the opportunity to upgrade to another category, depending on your qualifications and experience. Affiliate membership is open to anyone actively engaged in or considering a career in safety, health and wellbeing or who has an active interest in the OSH sector and wants to connect to a global health and safety support network.

Once you have joined IOSH as an Affiliate Member, you will be able to progress to either an Associate, Technical or Graduate Member.

Which path will you take?

To find out if your qualifications and experience meet the requirements for Associate, Technical or Graduate membership, please send an up-to-date CV, along with your certificates for any relevant qualifications, to our Membership team so we can check that they meet our criteria. Please do not send us original documents, good quality copies are acceptable.

Once we receive your application, we will review your qualifications and experience to decide if you’re eligible for Associate, Technical or Graduate membership. We will let you know the outcome within six working weeks of receipt. You’ll remain in your current category of membership until we confirm that your application to change category has been successful.
