To complete this course, learners must pass the IOSH Managing Safely® Exam and Project. The cost of both the exam and project are already included in the cost of the course.
The IOSH Managing Safely® Exam demonstrates the student’s understanding of the information contained within the course. The exam is taken online, so there is no need to attend a training centre. The exam consists of multiple choice questions and must be completed within 45 minutes. Students will need to achieve at least 36 points from a possible 60 to pass the exam. Students can have two attempts at the exam. A student will have to resit the whole course if they do not achieve the required marks on the second attempt.
The IOSH Managing Safely® Project demonstrates the student’s ability to conduct a risk assessment. The assessment can be conducted at the workplace, or anywhere with which the student is familiar. The project is completed online and must be emailed to the HSQE tutors for assessment. Draft copies of the project can be sent to the tutor before formal assessment. The project template consists of three pages:
- Page 1 is for administrative details and allows you to describe the scope that your risk assessment applies to
- Page 2 is for your risk assessment, based on a format explained in the course
- Page 3 is guidance on how to complete your project
Students need to achieve at least 23 points from a possible 38 points to pass the project.
