Membership of the College of Fellows recognises OHS/WHS professionals who are making a substantial ongoing contribution to, and have a record of high-level achievement in, the field of WHS/OHS. Fellows are committed members of the Institute and leaders within the profession.

The Institute's College of Fellows Chair and Chair of Awards and College Membership Sub-Committee are delighted to announce that online Fellowship applications are now open. Applications will open for two periods each year in April and October. The next intake will be in April 2023. Each will be open for completed applications for about 5-6 weeks. If you wish to apply, please make sure you read and address the document College of Fellows – Entry Criteria and Application Process and submit your online application with the required supporting documentation before the application close date. The volunteers who comprise the College of Fellows Awards and Membership committee will endeavour to make decisions on complying with applications within three months and provide advice on the outcome.
