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.
