Why chose NEBOSH qualifications for your company
Ensuring that health and safety is properly managed in business is extremely important. Why?
- 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 also 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.
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.
Our health, safety and environmental qualifications cater for most needs:
- NEBOSH’s Award-level qualifications - Provide a basic understanding of health and safety and environmental principles and practice. Excellent for raising awareness amongst your workforce.
- NEBOSH Certificate-level qualifications - Give a good foundation in health and safety or the environment for managers, supervisors and staff who have day to day responsibilities for these issues.
- NEBOSH Diploma-level qualifications - Aimed at individuals who are, or aspire to be professional health and safety advisors and environmental practitioners.
- MSc and MRes Qualifications - An option for progression for students who already hold a NEBOSH Diploma-level qualification.
Our qualifications are flexible. They are broken down into units which allow students to fit their training around other commitments. Some of our qualifications have a common unit, which means students can build on their knowledge and take further qualifications, without repeating the content they have studied previously.
Globally, over 600 course providers have been accredited by NEBOSH to offer some or all of our qualifications. Many course providers will deliver training on an in-company basis; giving you the opportunity to reflect your own systems of work or key hazards. Alternatively, you may wish to explore the possibility of your business becoming an accredited provider. Further details of the process can be found by clicking here.
