If you have been given a position of authority in the workplace you will have no doubt received health and safety training. It is the managers, supervisors and business owners that have to help run and control occupational health and safety. This will involve many different tasks which may include:
- how to conduct a risk assessment
- Evaluating hazards and working out safe methods of work
- Communicating health and safety within the workplace
- Writing reports, reporting incidents
- Designation duties such as approved first aider
It is not uncommon for those in managerial positions to consider taking their health and safety training one step further. If you enjoy that part of the job and want to consider specialising in this field there are some fantastic courses to consider taking. One of these is the NEBOSH Diploma in Occupational health and Safety.
Aim Higher with Your Qualification
After completing the NEBOSH Diploma the candidates are well on their way to becoming professionally qualified practitioners. All successful candidates are able to work towards chartered status that requires a portfolio of skills formed over a two year period. Once the portfolio has been created the candidate will have a review interview with the Privy Council.
Leave with Health and Safety Managerial Skills
During the NEBOSH National Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety delegates will learn a large number of skills. They will leave being able to competently provide help and advice for health and safety issues. This can also be used to continue providing their employers with health and safety management. The course is usually taught in a class room setting which is ideal as the tutors are on hand to provide immediate assistance, however the course is also available in the form of e-learning and distance learning, you still have the help of a tutor on the end of the phone or via email. The interactive learning is provided online, and you are able to work at times to suit you. This is the perfect solution if you wish to train towards a new qualification while you continue to work full or part time, or raise the children at home.
