More than half require a professional level qualification

However, health and safety is increasingly regarded as
an important skill for all kinds of workers to have; from
company directors to construction workers, machine

the reasons why the increasingly diverse range of NEBOSH
qualifications are so popular and globally respected.
NEBOSH does not deliver training courses itself.
Instead, courses are offered by NEBOSH Accredited Course
Providers, of which there are more than 620 situated across
35 different countries. Course Providers deliver the training
and education needed to achieve a NEBOSH qualification.
The process of accreditation ensures that the right
procedures and resources are in place and importantly, that
they meet a standard which maintains the integrity of the
NEBOSH assessment process.
NEBOSH has been a UK-recognised awarding body since
2000 and received Approved Awarding Body status from the
Scottish Qualifications Authority in 2009. The majority of
NEBOSH qualifications are accredited by SQA Accreditation,
which is widely recognised as a badge of quality in the UK
and increasingly, worldwide.
There are currently three different categories of NEBOSH
qualification - Award, Certificate and Diploma, plus the
Masters qualifications NEBOSH offers in partnership with
the University of Hull.
