Qualification Structure

For IDSE Level 6, the qualification is assessed via 2 closed book written exams (1 EA for both units) that comprises of total 150 marks in each assessment. The candidate must obtain 50% marks in order to pass the exam and he/she gets 5 hours for each exam. 

The diploma has been designed with an approach so that the candidate can easily establish, implement, maintain, manage and continuously improve the OH&S management system based on any standard including OHSAS 18001 or ISO 45001 that is yet to be released.

Where Unit 1 deals with generic occupational health and safety information of OH&S, the Unit 2 is more focused on enabling the candidate with core knowledge of engineering design assessments, material failure modes, incident investigations, reliability engineering, structure analysis, equipment selection, engineering risk assessment, engineering control designs and assessments, mathematical and geometric calculations and much more.
