NEBOSH has a strict and rigorous approach to malpractice, plagiarism and collusion. This ensures fairness for all our learners and provides reassurance for the organisations who employ our qualification holders.

You must not collude or share content with other learners and all the work you submit must be solely your own.

How we prevent malpractice

To deter and detect malpractice NEBOSH uses a wide range of techniques. These include:

  • The design of the assessment – passing requires application of learning to an unfamiliar scenario. Copy and pasting information from books or online will not answer the questions.
  • Own Work Statement – you will be asked to agree to an ‘own work statement’ when submitting your assignment.
  • Trained Examiners – NEBOSH Examiners receive bespoke training and scrutinise every submission for plagiarism and collusion.
  • Dedicated Ethical Practice Team – we employ a team of experts dedicated to identifying and investigating malpractice.
  • Plagiarism checkers  We use plagiarism software to spot malpractice, including similarities between cohorts.
NEBOSH Malpractice Policy

Please make sure you read and understand the Malpractice Policy beforehand – this contains extensive information about the conduct we expect from our learners and Learning Partners and the disciplinary sanctions for failing to adhere to them.
