Course materials

Course materials are ACT’s copyright, they have been approved by special licence from IOSH - this allows ACT not to use the standard IOSH course materials and to use its own instead. 


An IOSH ‘Working Safely’ certificate or passport (or maybe both) is awarded to all those who successfully complete both assessments.

Understanding of the course material is evaluated by means of a multiple choice assessment and hazard spotting exercises.

Classroom based taught courses

The IOSH Working Safely classroom course is delivered over one day and provides an opportunity to discuss the topics with other students and the tutor and would suit those that enjoy interaction in a classroom environment.  In particular, it has a number of features that may be helpful to those students who have not done formal study and assessments for some time.

ACT strives to involve students actively during training.  This is achieved through a workshop approach.  Depending on needs, this will usually involve syndicate exercises and group discussion.  The objective is always to underpin knowledge in a practical way to enable students to apply their newly acquired understanding to the work place.

Classroom based taught courses, involving face-to-face teaching, can be organised through out in-house services in your premises if you have a number of students who need this qualification. 

Contact us for further information on how this course might meet your needs or to discuss the learning options available. 


Elearning is a great method of learning for those without the time or availability to attend a taught course.  You can start an elearning course at any time and anywhere in the world.  It is an interesting and enjoyable way to learn and you can gain support from a tutor while working at your own pace. 

The course is available online and involves a minimum of 5 hours study, which can be done in a flexible way to suit your availability to study during the course. Both end assessments can conveniently be completed online and completion of the course has to be done within a 6 month period.
