IDSE for GradIOSH Membership

International Diploma in Safety Engineering (IDSE)

Certified by NCFE UK and Accredited by IOSH for GradIOSH Membership

Level 6 International Diploma in Safety Engineering is certified by NCFE UK and Accredited by IOSH for GRADIOSH Membership. The diploma is highly beneficial for those professionals who have some safety and engineering roles in the organization. The diploma is very unique and is much better than the available options because unlike other diploma in OH&S, it is based on skill oriented basic engineering knowledge necessary for day to day occupational safety and health affairs of the organizations. Key benefits and features of this diploma include

– Accredited by IOSH for GradIOSH Membership (IDSE for GradIOSH Membership)

– The diploma has only 2 units only. Both are assessed by a 5 hours written exam each

– There is no requirement of practical reports submission. Every thing is included in 5 hours exam for each unit

– The diploma is offered via distance learning only for experienced professionals. Please read registration requirements below

– No more waiting for the results for months. The result of exams will be declared within 15 working days.

– No more wastage of hard earned money. All the registered students will be offered one re-sit free in each unit.

– You can get registered for the diploma one week prior to the exam.

– Exams for the diploma will be administered by approved satellite centres in Pakistan (Islamabad, Karachi, Lahore), Jeddah, Muscat, Basrah, Doha, Dubai. We shall add more cities in this list in future

– Exams will be held minimum 6 times a year

Registration Requirements

You are eligible to apply for this diploma if you meet any of the following requirements:

1- A-Levels (Or equivalent in Science subjects) + 3 years OH&S experience OR

2- Level 3 certification in OH&S (IOSH Accredited only) + 3 years OH&S experience OR

3- A graduate degree in Science subjects from reputable university + 1 years OH&S experience OR

4- Four years engineering degree (B.E or BS Engg) from a reputable university

Note: A “Declaration Form” must be filled by each student as part of the registration confirming the qualification and experience criteria is met. Those who do not meet the registration requirements will not be registered. Registration requirement has been introduced to increase the pass percentage for the qualification and attracting only those professionals who have bright chances of success in IDSE.

Qualification Structure

Qualification is assessed via 2 closed book written exams (1 Ea for both units) comprising total 150 Marks in each assessment. Passing marks are 50% for each unit. Maximum time allowed for each examination is 5 hours.

The qualification has been carefully designed to meet industry requirements for occupational safety and health provisions. The existing diploma in OH&S provide generic information about occupational health and safety. Both units of IDSE have been designed in such a manner that the successful professionals of Unit 1 will be able to establish, implement, maintain, manage and continually improve the OH&S Management system based on any standard including OHSAS 18001 or upcoming ISO 45001. Similarly, Unit 2 has given more emphasis on the engineering related skill, knowledge and information for the requirement of occupational safety and health provisions at the workplace. The Unit 2 provides the professionals with the core knowledge of engineering which they can translate into skill base for engineering design assessments, material failure modes, incident investigations, reliability engineering, structure analysis, equipment selection, engineering risk assessments, engineering control designs and assessments, mathematical and geometric calculations and much more.
