New qualification - The NEBOSH Award in Health and Safety at Work (pilot)

NEBOSH is pleased to announce the launch of our new pilot qualification The NEBOSH Award in Health and Safety at Work.

This new qualification will benefit organisations internationally and within the UK who are seeking to implement a basic health and safety training programme as part of their workplace culture.   It will ensure employees have an understanding of the principles of risk control reducing the numbers of accidents and incidents, resulting in costs savings for the business.

This qualification also provides a perfect introduction to other NEBOSH qualifications including NEBOSH’s International General Certificate and National General Certificate.

The 3 day course covers the basic health and safety principles and practices essential in the workplace. These include:
 
• Understanding risk assessments and control strategies;
• Applying these control strategies to a number of common workplace hazards, including fire, electrical, transport and manual handling. 

For the first pilot phase there will be two examination dates which are 11 and 12 November 2009.  A second phase of the pilot is due in February 2010.
