IOSH Managing Safely Refresher eLearning is studied online via the International Workplace Academy website. The course has been designed for use on PCs, laptops and responsive devices including Apple and Android tablets and smartphones.

We recommend using a recent version of Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox for an optimal experience, but the course has been compatibility tested against:

  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 11
  • Microsoft Edge
  • Google Chrome (v52 or later)
  • Mozilla Firefox (v47 or later)
  • Apple Safari 9

In the interests of security and performance it is always recommended you upgrade to the latest supported version of your chosen web browser.

An enterprise version of the course is available for business, which can be delivered via the International Workplace online learning platform, or through integration with the client organisation’s LMS and/or reporting system. Please contact us for further information.


In consultation with UKIE, appointed to the UK Government’s panel on accessibility in gaming and online learning, the course has been designed to be user-friendly for people with cognitive impairments, and to enhance the learning experience for people who find traditional ‘written word’ learning challenging.


The course contains audiovisual content, including videos and animations, and an optional voiceover. Audio settings are controlled by the learner. The course can be completed without audio if desired: all audio content is captioned. Note that use audio controls may be impacted on Android devices as a result of software restrictions.


As course provider licenced by IOSH to deliver the course, International Workplace must retain control of the course content, and the progress and performance data of users on the course. However, our systems have been developed to make the end-to-end process as seamless as possible for corporate clients.

For organisations wishing to use International Workplace’s LMS we can apply your corporate branding to the system. And we can integrate with LDAP and ADFS single-sign-on systems or any of the authentication protocols supported by simpleSAMLphp, to allow their users to access the LMS without the need for additional login.

For organisations with their own corporate LMS, our use of Tin Can xAPI (the modern replacement for SCORM) to provide tracking allows us to launch the course from your LMS for a seamless user experience, while tracking remains under our control. And our reporting API ensures you can import progress data back into your own system.
