Introduction

The NEBOSH National Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety is a globally recognised health and safety qualification from an established independent examination board with over 25 years’ experience in providing up to date and relevant examinations.

What kind of people takes the NEBOSH National Diploma?

The NEBOSH National Diploma is designed to provide the underpinning knowledge for a professional career in health and safety. It is taken by both newly appointed health and safety practitioners and those with substantial experience. It equips holders to advice on effective management of risk across a range of employment sectors.

What are the benefits for the organisation?

Management of health and safety in the workplace is not only a legal obligation and a moral imperative; it also makes good business sense. Qualified health and safety professionals are an asset to their organisations, reducing costs by preventing accidents and ill health of employees, without incurring unnecessary expense by over-reacting to trivial risks.

Courses leading to the NEBOSH National Diploma can be taken in a variety of formats and at a pace to fit around the needs of the business. Its unitised structure recognises success as the student progresses. Its practical approach promotes the application of the knowledge acquired on the course to problem solving in the student’s own workplace.

Is the NEBOSH National Diploma a recognised qualification?

The NEBOSH National Diploma is recognised by IOSH – the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health – as fulfilling the academic requirements for Chartered Membership (CMIOSH) conferring the official title of Chartered Safety and Health Practitioner.

It is also accepted by the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM) as meeting their requirements for full membership. The NEBOSH National Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety is at level 6 in the National Qualification Framework, and is accredited by QCA, CEA and DELLS.

The NEBOSH National Diploma aims to provide the knowledge and understanding required by a competent health and safety professional. There are no specific entry requirements however, it is assumed that you already have knowledge gained from studying for a NEBOSH Certificate, or similar course.

What does the course cover?

The syllabus comprises four core units:

Unit A Managing health and safety
Unit B Hazardous agents in the workplace
Unit C Workplace and work equipment safety
Unit D Workplace-based assignment
Each taught unit is separately assessed by written examination. In addition there is a workplace-based assignment requiring application of learning across the syllabus. A unit certificate is issued denoting successful achievement of each unit. A Diploma award parchment is issued on completion of all four units.
