NEBOSH to attend inaugural OSH India event

The Occupational Safety & Health (OSH) trade exhibition and seminar programme will take place in Mumbai, India between 18th and 19th October, and is set to attract visitors from throughout the region.

Over the past twenty years, India’s economy has grown to become one of the largest in the world. An influx of foreign investment and sustained growth has turned the country into a globally significant exporter and importer of goods and services.

This economic development has led to greater importance being placed on health and safety standards in the region. This has been driven in part by the presence of global corporates and an increasing desire among Indian employers to improve welfare standards.

Demand for NEBOSH qualifications in India has grown significantly during the past five years. NEBOSH courses began to be offered by local providers in 2007 and since then the number of people taking NEBOSH courses in India has grown by more than 100% year-on-year. Improved employment prospects have increased demand for NEBOSH qualified individuals particularly in the oil and gas and construction industries.

NEBOSH International Manager Stuart Naylor commented: "We've witnessed a significant increase in demand for our qualifications throughout the world in recent years. More than half of NEBOSH examinations are now taken outside of the UK.

"India, alongside Asia and the Middle East, has helped to establish NEBOSH as a global benchmark of excellence in the field of health and safety, which is why we are delighted to attend and support this new important international event."
