Launching an updated version of its flagship diploma qualifications, NEBOSH’S new Diploma for Occupational Health and Safety Management Professionals will give successful learners the knowledge and practical application
Available in national and international options, this advanced health and safety qualification supports academic and career progression. The syllabus covers technical application as well as the professional skills such as leadership and managing change needed to help learners develop their career. Its Alumni include senior health and safety professionals for organisations such as Unilever, Shell, Ministry of Energy & Industry of Qatar, Microsoft, Kiwi Rail and Sony Pictures Entertainment.
Deep Arp, chief operating officer of NEBOSH, said, “Leading health and safety professionals have the distinctive ability to combine technical know how and practical application with soft and professional skills to really deliver effective health and safety practices. That’s why we spoke to leading professionals in the development of the qualification; our new Diploma reflects industry needs for well-rounded professionals and prepares learners for career progression.”
The diploma brings a focus to practical health and safety skills. Successful learners will be able to recognise and solve everyday health and safety issues and take opportunities for improvement.
Adam King, a dual NEBOSH Diploma holder and Group SHEQ director for Renewi, explained, “NEBOSH never just looks for a standard answer. It gives you a scenario when it tests you and makes you apply your knowledge as a professional to that scenario, which for me is a fantastic way of testing someone’s competence. ”
“Renewi were looking for someone with NEBOSH Diplomas as well as power station and construction experience. It turned out I was the only candidate who matched their requirements. I am now responsible for the SHEQ performance of 8,000 people across seven countries so it’s a really exciting role at an inspiring and forward-thinking business. Thanks in no small part to NEBOSH, I’ve been handed the kind of challenging position I’ve really been seeking as a qualified SHEQ professional,” he added.
