The NEBOSH International Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety is a leading qualification for health and safety professionals outside the UK. It teaches learners how to develop strategy, raise standards and drive change in their organisation.
Based on best practice, it provides a body of knowledge that's shared around the world helping to improve safety in all workplaces and progress the health and safety profession.
The NEBOSH International Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety gives learners the skills and knowledge to competently manage and control all aspects of health and safety, enabling them to reduce risk, raise standards and improve efficency in their company.
As gloablisation increases, governments and employers are recognising the need for a common and consistent standard for achieving and maintaining the health and safety of workers in all parts of the world. Based on international standards, the NEBOSH International Diploma provides a recognised level of practice that helps to improve safety standards and advance the profession on a global scale.
The NEBOSH International Diploma is modelled on the NEBOSH National Diploma. The key difference is the application of legal requirements.

Local laws and cultural factors are also included when appropriate.
It’s this global best practice approach which helps make sure people all around the world are working to the same high standards.
The NEBOSH International Diploma is for health and safety professionals working outside of the UK looking to develop their knowledge and skills to an advanced level.
Learners should already have a foundation-level qualification, such as the NEBOSH International Certificate, and/or have at least 5 years’ experience in the field.
