NEBOSH (The National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health) was formed in 1979. They offer a comprehensive range of globally-recognised, vocationally-related qualifications designed to meet the health, safety, environmental and risk management needs of all places of work.
The management of H&S is a legal obligation, a moral imperative and it makes business sense. As a qualified safety professional in your organisations you can be an asset by reducing costs, preventing accidents and ill health of employees.
Offered are three individual NEBOSH qualifications:
1. NEBOSH Health and Safety at Work Qualification (pilot) - a new qualification that isn't for health and safety professionals - it's for everyone else.
2. Qualifications - Certificate-level qualifications give a good foundation in health and safety for managers, supervisors and staff with health and safety among their day to day responsibilities.
3. Qualifications - Diploma are globally recognised qualifications aimed at professional health and safety advisors and environmental practitioners
