How is the IOSH Managing Safely Assessed?

Your Managing Safely certificate will be awarded upon the successful completion of two assessments;

  • a multiple-choice exam
  • a practical work-based 

The cost of both is included in the price of the course.

The IOSH Managing Safely Exam

The assessment is a multiple-choice examination, in which you will need to demonstrate what you have learned.

This is taken on the last day of the course with the support of your expert trainer.

We don’t stop there – take a look at our guide to completing the IOSH Managing Safely exam, complete with mock questions.

The IOSH Managing Safely Practical Assessment

This is a workplace risk assessment, in which you must show how you apply your practical knowledge to real-life situations.

You will complete the project online and submit it to TSW via our dedicated submission form.

You have ten days from the last day of the course to complete and submit your practical assessment.

For more information about the practical assessment, read of our guide “How To Take & Pass The IOSH Managing Safely Risk Assessment Project“.

Assessment Support and Certification

At TSW, our Managing Safely exam pass rate is above 99%. That’s because we ensure individual learners have all the support they need to pass their IOSH assessment with flying colours.

On successful completion of both assessments, you’ll gain a level two IOSH qualification and certificate.

Testimonials & Reviews

Case Study: Pullmaflex

“We have used TSW previously and found that both the service and knowledge of the consultant was excellent. Managers now have a better understanding of health and safety risks, responsibilities and the importance of ‘why’ so they can communicate to their direct reports.

The training met our objectives. Using the same organisation for a variety of training helps the trainer relate to our business. Having the same training provider builds trust between our managers and the trainer.

The trainer can provide business-related examples which the delegates can both buy into and understand.” – Human Resource Manager, Pullmaflex

Case Study: Newport Norse

“I found that IOSH courses often lasted over four days and were quite costly, but the training TSW delivered was only over three days and at a better price than other businesses we’d looked at. And, TSW has been operating for a long time and has a good reputation – I’d highly recommend them for ease of use, efficiency, and quality of training and support.” – Jakes Jones, Support Services Manager

Our Latest IOSH Managing Safely reviews

Very good course which provided me a good understanding on health and safety and definitely enhanced my knowledge. Paul made the course a lot more fun and interesting. He's peaked my interest in health and safety where I would consider enhancing my health and safety qualifications to pursue a career down that path.
Joshua P June 3, 2024
Initially my anticipation of the course was that it was going to be quite uninteresting and very legislative dominant. However Rebbecca made the course interesting and relevant to all our employment and was in tune with our needs. The members of the course in attendance were predominantly management and personally feel that this course is designed for managers (potential managers). From a personal perspective I do not intent to enter in management and should only really be catered for individuals who are in a management role.
Deb R May 31, 2024
Rebbecca was a great teacher for what could have been a boring course. Very thorough, kept it interesting and was very helpful by sharing past experience and knowledge. Thank you Rebbecca.
