The IOSH Managing Safely Refresher course is aimed at managers and supervisors who have previously undertaken the full IOSH Managing Safely qualification. Although the original certificate does not expire it is IOSH’s view that it is best practice for certificate holders to renew their learning within a three year period, however this is not essential.

The IOSH Managing Safely Refresher course provides delegates with the latest best practice and legislation changes and ensures that their knowledge and best practice is completely up to date.

With effect from the 1st April 2017, IOSH certificates for all refresher courses will contain the word “refresher” within the course title.
