Qualifications Essential

April 2012

The 2012 NEBOSH Jobs Barometer research has once again highlighted that qualifications are essential and no longer a luxury when applying to work in health and safety.

NEBOSH examined adverts for roles as Health & Safety Managers or Advisors and found that a NEBOSH qualification and/or Technician Membership of IOSH or higher was specified in 90% of cases.

A Healthy Industry

The number of roles in health & safety has remained stable throughout the past 12 months.

The research also highlighted that health & safety management applicants are most likely to find a position in the Midlands with an annual salary of approximately £44k. 30% of roles were located in the Midlands, almost double that of 2011.

Environmental Responsibilities

Environmental responsibilities and management qualifications featured heavily once again, with mentions in 62% of adverts.

NEBOSH Chief Executive, Teresa Budworth, commented: “Obviously we’re delighted that more employers than ever before are insisting that health and safety job applicants hold a NEBOSH qualification. But what’s more important is that high standards are not just being maintained, but are improving. This is crucial if employers are to protect lives, prevent injury and avoid the negative effects of poor health in the workplace.

  • "I felt a divine prompting to seek my Boss's recommendation when considering another learning partner, and she graciously suggested Astutis. Choosing Astutis turned out to be a decision without regrets. Even when I didn't pass the RA on my first attempt, the Director's response to my inquiries boosted my confidence to request a remark, which was facilitated at no extra cost thanks to the Director's advocacy. Astutis provided unwavering support throughout my journey, from inception to completion. I eagerly anticipate enrolling in additional courses and pursuing a diploma with them."

  • "Nebosh need to be consistent with the marking, I felt the marking can be somehow subjective. Different marker graded same script differently. I failed the first time because someone(marker) didn't understand the guideline and the second marker did mentioned something different. Good study material and content."

  • "Provided all necessary supporting documentation alongside the virtual training."

  • "I found the NG1 course particularly useful in understanding what was required for the exam."

  • "Good communication, helpful and friendly"

  • "Interesting and relevant."

  • "Easy to deal with - course materials good"

  • "10 days seems a long time for the syllabus Also the class sizes are quite large leading to logistical issues"
