NEBOSH qualifications can play an important part in ensuring that the health and safety provision businesses have in place is effective. This may explain why so many organisations choose to include NEBOSH qualifications on their competency matrices.

Whether you are recruiting a health and safety professional, or looking to make improvements within your organisation and provide training for your employees, NEBOSH can help. 

Why choose NEBOSH qualifications for your company?

Ensuring that health and safety is properly managed is extremely important for organisations of any size, and in any sector. When considering their approach to health and safety, employers should remember the following points:  

  • It is a legal obligation – Employers must protect the health, safety and welfare of their employees and other people who might be affected by their business.
  • It’s the right thing to do – Having effective health and safety arrangements in place helps to protect people from injury and in the most serious of cases, loss of life.
  • It makes good business sense – Being able to demonstrate good health and safety provision can help win new business. Conversely, a health and safety failing can result in prosecution, increased costs and seriously damage a business’s reputation.
