What is a NEBOSH Course and Why it is Important?
Founded in 1979, NEBOSH (National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health) is the national examination body responsible for vocational health and safety courses. The organisation manages qualifications, although it does not directly deliver them. NEBOSH courses are delivered by a range of institutions, including educational establishments and privately run training firms. Bodies delivering the training courses must gain accreditation from the examination board in order to deliver them. The range of qualifications available is broad and the organisation offers three levels of qualification; Awards, Certificates and Diplomas.
NEBOSH Certificate Level Qualifications
Most NEBOSH training providers offer a range of ‘certificate’ level qualifications in the topics of environmental management, construction health and safety, fire safety and general workplace occupational health and safety. NEBOSH certificate level qualifications are valuable to all employees and employers, and are recognised nationally (and in some cases, internationally) as setting industry standards for safety and risk management across a whole range of industries. For small firms who lack resources and expertise in the area of health and safety, these certificate level qualifications offer a simple, established route to ensuring that your employees are working safely and within required legislative standards.
There is a range of options for health and safety training at the certificate level and these offer a comprehensive set of qualifications for managers and other responsible people. They can be crucial in understanding the basic legal requirements around the legislation, but also are designed to create positive attitudes and work practices.
NEBOSH Certificate level qualifications fall into a number of categories
- NEBOSH General Certificate and NEBOSH International General Certificate course covering general safety in the workplace and managing health and safety.
- NEBOSH Construction Certificate for those working in the construction industry.
- NEBOSH Oil & Gas Certificate for those working offshore in the oil and gas sector
- NEBOSH Environmental Certificate for those with environmental responsibilities.
- NEBOSH Fire Certificate for those with responsibilities for fire safety and risk management.
