International Workplace shortlisted for Learning Technologies Award

International Workplace has been announced as a finalist at the Learning Technologies Awards 2017 for the latest version of its bestselling online health and safety course.

The IOSH Managing Safely v.5.0 eLearning course has been shortlisted in the category of ‘Best online distance learning programme’, a major endorsement of the significant investment made in the new digital version of the course.

International Workplace’s Managing Director, David Sharp, commented:

“Being shortlisted is a fantastic accolade, and I’m delighted for everyone here at International Workplace who was involved in developing our new IOSH Managing Safely eLearning course. We’re going to head to the Awards Dinner on 29 November and have a really good night, celebrating the months of hard work that have gone into developing this course.”

The Learning Technologies Awards attract entries from around the world and are recognised as the benchmark for excellence in digital learning. International Workplace has enjoyed awards success there in the past, having won silver for Best online distance learning programme in 2011 and been shortlisted as eLearning Developer of the Year in 2013.

To help celebrate our success, we've created a free, no obligation trial to allow learners and L&D professionals to study Module 1 of the seven-module course for free, at

More details about this offer, and the course, can be found in a short film we have created, which serves as a taster of the course itself.

IOSH Managing Safely can be studied online via the International Workplace Academy, or integrated with a client’s corporate learning management system (LMS) for easy delivery and reporting within large organisations. Its 25,000 lines of new code introduced a number of innovations to improve the user experience and provide advanced records management for employers.

For employers with their own corporate LMS, the use of Tin Can xAPI (the modern replacement for SCORM) to provide tracking allows the course to be launched from their own LMS for a seamless user experience, while tracking remains under International Workplace’s control, as required by IOSH. An associated Reporting API ensures that employers can import progress data back into their own system if they want to.
