I would really like to apply for Techiosh membership but was wondering about the benefits of TECHiosh status and whether it is worth spending the money on it.
Does a person use the letters after their name and is it recognized by employers?
Does anyone have it and have any experiences good or bad?
What are the merits and Demerits of Techiosh?
What are the qualifications required for applying Techiosh?
Any of our citehr EHS members have Techiosh membership?
Thanks in advance. . .

Dear Mr. Raghu,
I am not a Full time H&S professional.
I am a Project Person.
I have always worked considering H&S of my team members in my projects.
Looking at my passion my company has given me additional responsibility of EHS.
Although I am actively involved in H&S since 2004, I have not come accross any one who is Techiosh. I am sure nobody knows about this as well in Nasik - Maharashtra area
If you can share what is the fees and what is the syllabus, probably one can evaluate.
Request to pl keep on shearing.

Dear Raghu

I think in India companies are just behind qualifications which according to the statutory requirement... It is limited to Diploma or Degree in any Stream of Engineering + Post Graduate Diploma in Safety from State Technical Education Board recognized institute... Any other courses like what you mentioned about Techoish, in India companies will be considered this as an additional qualification than that... But if you don't have basic qualification no one will even consider...

Nowadays lot of MNC's are giving importance to safety and looking for potential people where these type of qualification may help... I am sure this will be the present scenario of Indian industries... This is an HR forum basically... A lot HR People also here... I am sure 99% of them may not even know about this course... So a condition which demanding this qualification for job is so far...

I just searched in net and got the following link... You might surely come across this... However please let us know more details about this course as Mr. Sudhir said...

Dear Dipil,
Yes in India they are not required such kind of certification's but who looking for job in overseas if they have Techiosh certification/membership they will easily get good job <link outdated-removed> ( Search On Cite | Search On Google ) Techiosh is mostly required for Manager level posts (I think so).
Once you get that certification/membership you will able to login in IOSH website will get updated EHS related stuffs. They will invite us for some EHS conferences it will help to improve our EHS skills and they will update all latest updates through mail & Postal etc...,,,
I am also have same link which you gave to me/us. Once i get exact details will let us know.
Keep on touch. . .
Dear seniors,

Thanks in advance.

Safety Professionals,

The intention of joining membership of any body is to be updated with things happening around.

IOSH (www.iosh.co.uk) based in UK is a professional body know for its commitment and work in the HSE field. It’s an organization well known around the globe and has good reputation. (Please see the website to know more.)


The link for membership is attached above. The membership fee currently is GBP 148 which is roughly INR14500. All new members are welcomed initially as Affiliate Members. The cost for your first year of membership is £148. Once you've joined IOSH will review your qualifications and experience. If appropriate then will recommend that you're transferred to Associate, Technical or Graduate membership. If the committee ratifies this recommendation then no additional costs for subscription are incurred. (Need to understand that it takes some time to hear from committee on your status In my case it was 3months maybe things are faster now). NEBOSH IGC can get you TechIOSH status. Every Technical Member has to maintain their Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

Hope the above is clear on steps for gaining Tech IOSH status.

A million dollar question. Should you join or not?

Answer is YES & NO. I was a TechIOSH member for 3 years benefit was that I could highlight recruiter’s abroad of being a TechIOSH member which would give me a certain leverage upon many who did not have any kind of affliction. Also I use to maintain CPD for GradIOSH status. To maintain CPD I would update myself on regular basis. Had access to much information into HSE relevant material from IOSH site.

Drawback is only the pricing you need to shell out year after year.

I suggest only if your organization needs you to or you are on a job hunt and have been asked for professional membership or you plan to go big in HSE to join considering it as investment.

Hope to have answered all your query
