INTERNATIONAL DIPLOMA IN SAFETY ENGINEERING (IDSE)
International Diploma in Safety Engineering (IDSE) is customized qualification of Proftech Leading Institute which is certified by a UK based awarding body and Accredited by IOSH for Grad IOSH Membership. This qualification is also accepted by BCSP (USA) as a Qualified Equivalent Program to achieve the TSP (Transitional Safety Professional) Status.
The Qualification has been designed and developed by Proftech Leading Institute.
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 Grad IOSH Membership
- IDSE is a recognized as a a Qualified Equivalent Program by BCSP (USA) for TSP (Transitional Safety Practitioner) status
- The diploma has 2 units. Both are assessed by a 5 hours written exam each
- There is no requirement of practical reports submission. Everything is included in 5 hours exam for each unit
- The diploma is offered via distance learning only for experienced professionals. Please read registration eligibility requirements
- 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. Exam retakes are highly discounted.
- You can get registered for the diploma 4 week prior to the exam.
- Exams for the diploma will be administered by approved and independent invigilators of Proftech Leading Institute.
Unlike other Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety, IDSE requires candidate to meet any of the following criteria for registration. The criteria have been established so that only competent professional may apply for IDSE to increase the success rate of the qualification.
You are eligible to apply for this diploma if you meet any of the following requirements:
1. Level 3 certification in OH&S (IOSH Accredited only) + 3 years OH&S experience OR
2. A graduate degree in Science subjects from reputable university (Min 60% marks) + 1 years OH&S experience OR
3. Four years engineering degree (B.E or BS Engg. with Min 60% aggregate marks or equivalent CGPA) 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 is assessed via 2 closed book written exams (1 Ea for both units) comprising total 150 Marks in each assessment. Passing marks are 50% i.e. 75 Marks 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 diplomas 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 and 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.
UNIT 1: ACHIEVING CONTINUAL IMPROVEMENT IN OH&S MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Element 1 : Assess the planning of an OH&S Management System from continual improvement perspective
Element 2 : Assess the established & Implemented OH&S Management System from the continual improvement perspective
Element 3 : Review and assess the efficiency and effectiveness of the inspection and audit process for OH&S Management System
Element 4 : Review and assess the efficiency and effectiveness of Management Review process for the OH&S Management System
UNIT 2: PRINCIPLES AND APPLICATION OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY IN SAFETY
Element 1 : Assess and apply basic principles of Chemistry at the workplace for occupational health and safety
Element 2 : Assess and apply basic principles of Physics at the workplace for occupational health and safety
Element 3 : Assess various inspection techniques and their applications for mechanical equipment
Element 4 : Assess the designs of tools, equipment or structures for their reliability for use in a given environment from an occupational health and safety perspective
Element 5 : Assess the occupational health and safety risks from electricity at the workplaces
Element 6 : Assess the occupational health and safety risks from fire at the workplaces
Element 7 : Assess the occupational health and safety risks from nuclear and other radiations hazards
Element 8 : Assess the Biological health hazards at the workplace and the application of suitable controls
Element 9 : Assess the significance of engineering controls against a range of hazards at the workplaces
Element 10 : Assess the requirement of information Technology for Occupational Health and safety within the workplaces
Element 11 : Assess various mechanical devices used in industries for Occupational Health and safety at the workplaces for their suitability of use in specific environments
Upon successful completion of both units, Qualifi (Awarding body) will issue the diploma to the candidates through Proftech Leading Institute.
The diploma holders can subsequently apply for GradIOSH membership with IOSH after payment of requisite fee.
They can also apply for the TSP (Transitional Safety Professional) status with BCSP (USA) and proceed to qualify for the CSP examinations.

Exam Pattern and Procedure
IDSE is assessed via 2 closed book written exams (1 Ea for both units) comprising total 150 Marks in each exam. Passing marks are 50% for each unit. Maximum time allowed for each examination is 5 hours. Candidates can opt to sit in both unit exams separately i.e. a gap of 2 months to 12 months Note: There will be two sections in each exam i.e. Section A and Section B. Both section need to be completed the same day without any break in between.
We assess students for their skills and knowledge in OH&S and therefore our question papers are carefully designed to ensure question paper itself does not become a communication barrier between the examiner and the candidates.
Exam will be conducted in a fair manner to avoid any likelihood of Malpractice or Maladministration. The exams will either be conducted at our approved satellite centers under independent invigilation or at selected British Council Centers. (Please confirm about the exam center before making registrations).
We strictly follow our policy on Malpractice and Maladministration and are therefore advised to all candidates to go through the policy before making registration for IDSE.
We reserve the right to shift the exam center from our local affiliate office to British Council if the situation may necessitate.
