Who We Are

Our qualifications have been written not by educationalists but
By people in the industries
For the requirements of the industry
For industry by industry
By the profession for the profession

Industry Occupational Health and Safety requirements are evolving all the time, in this the 21st century needs will only increase as new technology and working practices.

ABIOSH have held discussions with these industries to see what their practices and concerns are to ensure that we can reflect this in the training we deliver – a combination of Health and Safety solutions for not only the safety of the industry but also the individuals.

The Awarding Body of International Safety and Health – ABIOSH – has been developed to provide qualifications that relate to modern industry. All the awards we provide are based on industrial requirements that we have researched through many companies. Today many of the Health and Safety qualifications need to be updated and constantly improved. The awards that ABIOSH provide have been rigorously subjected to amendments and criticism from various Health and Safety professionals.

All of the qualifications we offer are assessed through examinations with the required pass rate higher than other awards and also cover specific along with general areas of Health and Safety. Student feedback will be more open and honest and not just a letter stating a pass or refer.

Employment is driven by employers; advances in technology require an ever evolving series of qualifications, which reflect today’s technology but continues to look at tomorrow’s advances.

So what do employers want? – they need to be safe in the knowledge that their investment in equipment and people are safe and ultimately taking their business in the direction they want. This is why we have spoken to companies in various sectors and travelled to meet employers in Australia and the USA.

The solution is what individuals and companies need – in today’s market “time is money” and therefore standards and processes need to be continuously monitored to ensure that the final results is measureable, attainable and the solution.
