Why take a NEBOSH qualification?

 2. NEBOSH qualifications are designed to improve knowledge and understanding of key elements of health and safety, such as hazards, risk assessment and legal compliance. This understanding will help you to manage risks in all types of workplaces, either in health and safety or operational management roles.

3. Improved knowledge leads to improved skills. NEBOSH qualifications will help you to improve your leadership and interpersonal skills which are crucial to anyone within a health and safety role. This will allow you to influence and change behaviour by educating your colleagues to use better health and safety practices.

4. NEBOSH qualifications also look to improve your written communication skills allowing you to prepare reports and documents to report on the health and safety of your workplace.


We have an FAQ section to answer some of your most common questions. If you have a question that you can’t find the answer to, please get in touch.
Anyone who wants to further their understanding of health and safety whilst improving their employability can do so! There are no restrictions. However, learners must be prepared to put in the study and revision time required to pass their assessments. 

The NEBOSH National General Certificate and NEBOSH International General Certificate are both versions of the NEBOSH General Certificate. The National General Certificate couse is available in the UK only and the International General Certificate is available to all countries outside of the UK.

They’re the same level, have the same units, elements and learning outcomes and they both follow the same exam structure and grading system.

The course content isn’t that much different either. They both teach you how to manage health and safety based on the “Plan-Do-Check-Act” management system. But they reference different legislation and regulation in the finer details. Find out more about the difference in versions here.

The NEBOSH NGC course is an ideal place to start as it gives a broad grounding in the field of health and safety. The NEBOSH National Diploma course will build on knowledge gained at this level. Whilst it is not mandatory to have a pre-qualification to take the NEBOSH National Diploma, it is very highly recommended you have either the NEBOSH General Certificate or at least 5 years health and safety work experience.
The NEBOSH Diploma is a level 6 qualification which is equivalent to a foundation level degree. According to the National Qualifications Framework, this equates to around 2/3 of a full bachelor's degree.
The NEBOSH Diploma course is available in two versions. National for UK based learners and International for learners outside the UK. Both courses are equal to one another however the syllabus is slightly different and is tailored to legislation in different parts of the world.
As a NEBOSH learner you have your own login to a portal containing unique health & safety information, events for tailored Continuing Professional Development, networking opportunities a biannual journal exploring recent health and safety research. The NEBOSH National Diploma qualification meets the academic requirements to apply for Graduate Membership (Grad IOSH) of Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH). It is the first step to becoming a Chartered Health and Safety Practitioner as a chartered Member of IOSH (CMIOSH). The next step is completing a Skills Development Portfolio. Once you have passed all of the units you will also need to maintain your continuing professional development (CPD). You will be asked to attend a peer review interview.

NEBOSH stands for the 'National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health' and offers globally recognised qualifications covering health and safety and risk management. NEBOSH  provides syllabuses, exams and assignments to Accredited Course Providers, such as Astutis who in turn deliver training courses to prepare candidates for NEBOSH assessments and exams.

NEBOSH courses are a valuable introduction to occupational safety and health. They are suitable for any employee, at any level, in any sector and are one of the most popular health and safety qualifications asked for by employers in job advertisements.
