One of the world’s leading health and safety awarding bodies has launched updated versions of its Diploma qualification.

Available in national and international options, the NEBOSH Diploma for Occupational Health and Safety Management Professionals focuses on practical health and safety skills.

It will, Chief Operating Officer Dee Arp said, enable successful learners to recognise and solve everyday health and safety issues as they are asked to complete a range of tasks required by professionals in the workplace.

NEBOSH consulted more than 600 people, including directors, managers and advisors from the safety profession, in the development of the new Diploma. The syllabus covers technical application as well as the professional skills — such as leadership and managing change — needed to help learners develop their careers.

“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,” Ms Arp said. “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 revised Diploma will replace the NEBOSH Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety. For more information see www.nebosh.org.uk/nationaldip or www.nebosh.org.uk/internationaldip.
