How do I become a health & safety consultant?
There are lots of options available for becoming qualified, which means you can pick the pathway that most suits your way of learning. Vocational training and work-based experience in the form of RQFs is one option, or you can opt for classroom-based learning and exam assessment if you prefer, or a mixture of the two!
At Curtins, our health & safety consultants have professional memberships with both the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), and the Association for Project Safety (APS) as a minimum. Alongside this they have studied an accredited occupational safety and health qualification, hold other relevant industry qualifications and experience, and carry out continuing professional development.
In order to gain membership with IOSH and the APS, there are a number of routes which can be chosen. These include health and safety, design, and construction related RQF level qualifications – ranging from certificates, diplomas and university degrees. Combined with experience, these will enable you to gain the relevant membership status.
