Membership terms


Membership period
Our membership runs from 1st January until the 31st December.  We will adjust your fees if you join after the 1st July.

What does the membership fee pay for?
It allows us to develop content and resources to help you in your studies and your career, and to deliver member benefits like Exposure magazine. Membership fees also support our campaigns.

We aim to keep fees as low as we can and any surplus we make, we invest back into the organisation so we can continue to champion the profession and support members in their quest for worker health protection.

When will my membership start?
Once you've submitted your online application form and paid your membership fee, then the Membership team will start to process your application.  This will include checking your qualifications or other important information that you provided.  Once this information has been verified, then your membership will be activated and you will have access to the member benefits.  We will send you an email to let you know that this has happened, and we aim to do this within 5 working days.

Cancellation, cooling off and refunds
Membership is an annual contract and membership fees are non-refundable. 

You have 14 days from your payment being processed in which to change your mind and cancel the agreement. If you choose to cancel your membership within 14 days from your payment being processed and have used any of our products or services, we will deduct the value of these products and services from the membership fees paid.  If a welcome pack has been issued this must be returned to us. The cost of postage and packing applicable to the return of the welcome pack will be at your own expense and we will not be accountable for these costs.  Please contact our Membership team should you have any questions.

If you do not wish to renew your membership, you should inform us in writing by email at least ten days before your membership expires.
