The National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH) is a registered charity who awards qualifications in health and safety and environmental management.
Our work helps to prevent accidents and ill-health in workplaces across the globe. Each year, around 50,000 people take NEBOSH qualifications in over 110 countries.
We offer health, safety, and environmental qualifications to suit everybody – from introductory level through to professional level Diplomas and Masters.
Our qualifications are accessible via a global network of over 600 accredited course providers who offer a mix of traditional face to face teaching, e-learning and distance learning.
NEBOSH have witnessed a significant increase in international demand for our qualifications in recent years. Overseas registrations more than tripled over the three year period to the end of 2013. Now more than 60% of all NEBOSH examinations are taken outside the UK.
The significant benefits our qualifications offer to our students and their employers help to explain this continued international success:
NEBOSH Qualifications – Benefits to students
► Knowledge – our qualifications give holders knowledge that will help them better perform in their roles; whether health and safety or environmental management is their main responsibility or part of what they do.
► Career Development – NEBOSH qualifications are recognised by employers across the globe and by safety and environmental professional bodies for both membership and continuing professional development.
► Flexibility – NEBOSH’s progressive, modular qualifications are designed to fit around a busy working life.
NEBOSH Qualifications – Benefits to employers
► Relevance – The syllabuses for all of our qualifications are developed in conjunction with industry experts and employers – this ensures that they are relevant to the workplace.
► Assurance – Our qualifications are rigorously assessed. An employer whose staff are NEBOSH qualified has an assurance about their capabilities.
► A safer workplace -Investing in health and safety training for employees positively impacts safety performance.
