ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

It is well recognised by all parties that time can erode both knowledge and skill. To overcome this, for delegates who took the full IOSH Managing Safely course within the last three years, IOSH is now recommending that they sit a re-certification course prior to the end of their three-year period. For those who took the full course more than three years ago, IOSH recommends that they undertake the full 3-day course.
