Membership benefits

Being part of IIRSM is about respect, recognition and responsibility. You’re more than a member, you’re part of who we are.

We provide you with practical education, resources and networking to help you embrace risk.

Our members don’t just work in health, safety and environment, nor are they simply experts in quality, sustainability, nor governance, security, compliance and audit. Instead, they work in all these fields and more, to make integrated risk decision making valuable to their organisations.

  • Raising standards in risk management
  • Building relationships and networks
  • Sharing of experiences and knowledge
  • Achieving recognition for our members
  • Providing industry and risk insights
  • Offering professional development opportunities

“I wanted to join a professional institute that allowed me to capture the broad topic of risk and apply those risk techniques into each discipline, to help me with my own professional development. IIRSM is a good fit for me as an individual. I’m a fan of what the Institute offers” Stephen Smith is Executive Director, SHEQ Europe, Middle East & Canada at Multiplex

"For me, being a Fellow of IIRSM is about three things - respect, recognition and responsibility. I demonstrate and receive respect from my peers. I am recognised for my professionalism and expertise and I have a responsibility to give back. I am proud of my achievement and enjoy my relationship with IIRSM and its members." Karla Gahan, Senior Consultant, Risk Advisory & Analytics, Barnett Waddingham
