An international recognized qualification set by the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH), this is an examined qualification for those involved in Health and Safety at work.
The course is suitable for those seeking a career in health and safety, supervisors, managers and specialists whose work involves a significant amount of health and safety management. It is also ideal for newly appointed safety officers/advisor.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS FOR THE ORGANISATION?
Many larger organisations choose the NEBOSH Certificate as a key part of their supervisors’ or management development programme. By ensuring that line managers have a sound understanding of the principles of risk management they build an effective safety culture in the company. Smaller organisations, operating in lower risk environments, often choose the NEBOSH certificate as the appropriate qualification for the manager taking the lead on health and safety issues.
