The IOSH Managing Safely® assessment is split into two parts: a multiple-choice question paper and a risk assessment project.

The question paper features 30 multiple choice exam questions and is completed online once you have finished the course. Candidates will have one hour to complete this question paper, which must be completed in one sitting, treated as a closed-book exam, and cannot be revisited or restarted.

After the question paper is completed, you must complete a risk assessment project in your workplace that will be marked and assessed to ensure that it meets the IOSH criteria before your certificate can be issued.

The assessment cannot be attempted until all of the course modules have been completed, and must be taken within 3 months of starting the course. If you fail the assessment, you can contact us and we will reset the course free of charge so that you can try again.


It takes approximately 22 hours to complete the course in full. This should be spread out over multiple sessions and must be completed within 3 months of starting.
