In a recent review of 100 health, safety, environmental, fire and CDM vacancies, 87 adverts asked for applicants to hold a NEBOSH qualification.
The NEBOSH General Certificate -- the 'go to' foundation qualification for people aspiring to a career in health and safety -- was the most popular requirement. It was closely followed by NEBOSH's practitioner-level Diploma and the NEBOSH Certificate in Construction Health and Safety.
Of those vacancies that did not specify a NEBOSH qualification, 62% asked for membership of a professional body -- such as IEMA and IOSH -- for which a NEBOSH qualification can meet all or part of the membership criteria.
With vacancies ranging from SHE Coordinator and Health & Safety Advisor to Head of Health & Safety, the research illustrates how NEBOSH qualifications are considered to be indicators of competence at any stage of a practitioner's career.
Dee Arp, NEBOSH Director of Technical Standards, said "NEBOSH works closely with employers to develop qualifications that give learners the relevant skills they need to work in all kinds of workplaces. This research is a positive endorsement of the work we do in helping to develop competent practitioners that employers want and value; together we are keeping our friends, families and colleagues even safer when they go to work each day."

The latest whitepaper from Honeywell explores the causes and consequences of occupational noise induced hearing loss (NIHL) to help safety managers educate their workforce on the importance of adequate hearing protection. ‘Understanding the causes and consequences of occupational hearing loss’ looks at the risks associated with wearing poorly fitting or no hearing protection, with a focus on how NIHL affects a worker’s physical and psychological wellbeing, and also the cost of NIHL to the economy.
