To complete this course, learners must pass the IOSH Working Safely Exam and Hazard Spotting Exercise. The cost of both the exam and hazard spotting exercise are already included in the cost of the course.
The IOSH Working 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 30 minutes. Students will need to achieve at least 20 points from a possible 33 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. (We do not charge for resits.)
