NEBOSH launches updated Health and Safety at Work Award
NEBOSH, one of the world’s leading health and safety awarding bodies, has launched an updated Health and Safety at Work Award. The three-day qualification is popular in countries around the world for giving learners the first steps to health and safety competence.
Designed as a solid introduction to workplace health, safety and risk, the qualification is applicable to all industries and a new assessment – a workplace review – is designed to help learners apply their new knowledge by reviewing how health and safety is managed, identifying any issues present and how they are controlled and making recommendations for improvements. This makes it a great option for employers too because they can give their workforce practical skills that improve organisational health and safety performance.
What’s more, the NEBOSH Health and Safety at Work Award is a qualification – accredited at SCQF Level 5 – rather than a course, so that organisations and learners can be assured of its quality.
Dee Arp, NEBOSH Chief Operating Officer, says: “Health and safety is for everyone, not just for managers. The NEBOSH Health and Safety Award at Work is a bitesize qualification that’s understandable and accessible so anyone can learn and add value to their own workplace. The language and principles are also closely aligned to NEBOSH Certificate-level qualifications to enable progression for people that want to develop further.”
