What is NEBOSH?

NEBOSH or the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health is a UK-based independent examination board delivering vocational qualifications in health, safety & environmental practice and management. NEBOSH was formed in 1979. NEBOSH has a charitable status. NEBOSH offers a wide range of safety qualifications. NEBOSH sets the examination requirements and the learning outcomes. NEBOSH training providers have to design the training to meet NEBOSH standards. NEBOSH has become very popular in the world. There are over 180,000 NEBOSH trained (or rather NEBOSH training providers who have trained them to take the NEBOSH exams) that hold a NEBOSH qualification. 

NEBOSH does not deliver NEBOSH courses or any other courses. NEBOSH develops syllabuses for its qualifications and NEBOSH sets methods of assessment. The methods of assessment could be NEBOSH examinations and practical coursework. NEBOSH Courses are delivered by NEBOSH Accredited Course Providers.

Every year over 50,000 candidates are interested in attending NEBOSH qualifications NEBOSH has more than 600 NEBOSH Course Providers based in more than 40 countries around the world. NEBOSH states that in 2014-2015 there were about 180,000 NEBOSH assessments taken in over 132 countries (this would be either in NEBOSH training provider venues of British Council venues). NEBOSH qualifications are recognised by relevant professional membership bodies. Some of those that recognised NEBOSH qualifications include Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), the International Institute of Risk & Safety Management (IIRSM) and the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA).

In 1974 the Health and Safety at Work Act laid down general principles for the management of health and safety at work in Britain. As a result, the role of health and safety officer and health and safety manager became more widespread in British workplaces. To meet this need for the provision of vocational qualifications in the area of occupational safety and health, NEBOSH National Examination Board of Occupational Safety Health was established in September 1979. NEBOSH started operating in Leicester. NEBOSH still operates from Leicester. Then NEBOSH Board set out its primary objective: "To improve the quality & quantity of people with vocational qualifications in Occupational Safety and Health”

The first NEBOSH Associate level and Member level examinations took place in June 1980. Candidates sat five NEBOSH papers; Law; Behavioural Science; Techniques of Safety Management; Occupational Health & Hygiene and General Science. Recognition of NEBOSH qualifications began to grow. In June 1982, 140 people registered for their NEBOSH Ordinary level certificate and 84 for the Higher level certificate. By 1986, NEBOSH had increased the number of annual examination sessions from two to three. In February 1987 NEBOSH introduced a new NEBOSH qualification structure, which included a NEBOSH Certificate and a NEBOSH Diploma. In 1988 the NEBOSH Diploma level qualification was changed to feature four 3 hour exams and completion of a case study. 

In the 1990s, NEBOSH began to formally separate itself from IOSH. In March 1992, NEBOSH incorporated as a limited company with Companies House. In April 1992, NEBOSH registered as a charity with the Charity Commission. In 1992 the NEBOSH Specialist Environmental Diploma was launched, followed shortly by the NEBOSH Construction Certificate. 

In 2000 the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA) - now The Office of the Qualifications and Examinations Regulator (Ofqual) accredited NEBOSH as an awarding body. NEBOSH launched two new qualifications, the NEBOSH Fire Certificate and NEBOSH International General Certificate. The NEBOSH Specialist Environmental Diploma was revised and renamed the NEBOSH Diploma in Environmental Management in September 2008. In 2010, four more NEBOSH qualifications were launched - the NEBOSH Award in Health and Safety at Work, the NEBOSH Health and Well-being Certificate, the NEBOSH International Construction Certificate and the NEBOSH International Technical Certificate in Oil and Gas Operational Safety. 

In 2011 NEBOSH as well as other UK and international professional bodies developed the scheme for the Occupational Safety & Health Consultants Register (OSHCR), a scheme which provides a centrally held register of qualified health and safety consultants for businesses and employers to easily find and hire for their own places of work.

In 2014, NEBOSH a research based master's degree jointly with the University of Hull, with the first degrees awarded in 2015. In 2014, NEBOSH began working with the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to offer a postgraduate level qualification to new HSE Inspectors responsible for enforcement of safety law in the UK.

The NEBOSH accreditation process ensures NEBOSH Course Providers have procedures and resources in place to deliver training programmes of a standard required by NEBOSH and to maintain the integrity of the NEBOSH assessment process.

Accredited NEBOSH Course Providers not only deliver NEBOSH courses, but organise NEBOSH exam sittings for NEBOSH candidates. NEBOSH Accredited Course Providers include educational establishments, commercial training and consultancy providers and large employers.

 

NEBOSH is now recognised for its qualifications, which have been taken in more than 132 countries, throughout the world. It has developed five International NEBOSH qualifications - NEBOSH International General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety, NEBOSH International Certificate in Construction Health and Safety, NEBOSH International Certificate in Fire Safety and Risk Management,NEBOSH International Technical Certificate in Oil and Gas Operational Safety, NEBOSH International Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety.

In India NEBOSH courses are offered through classroom sessions as well as distance mode by Safety training institutes. In 2014/15 overseas registrations increased to 114,536, up by 6,047.

Latest News

Will stocks retest 2020 low?
The stock market fell sharply last week as the number of daily new covid-19 cases jumped to more than 5,000. The market reacted negatively as the sharp rise in infections will lead to the tightening of restriction and negatively affect consumer confidence, hurting the Philippines’ economic outlook. However, the latest surge might be due to several factors including the presence of new variants, which are said to be more transmissible and the relaxation of some quarantine restrictions.

Coupled with the steep rise of inflation, the Philippine stock market has decoupled from the rest of Asia and is now the region’s worst performing market in 2021. As of last Friday, the Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) was down by 9.85 percent for the year-to-date period, while the MSCI AC Asia Pacific index was higher by 4.3 percent.

Although the local stock market could stay depressed in the near term as the number of infections stay elevated, I do not think we will see the PSEi retesting the 2020 low of 4,600 or going below 5,000 for the following reasons:

Small likelihood of government reimposing ECQ. Despite the record number of daily new cases, the government is not expected to reimpose an enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) which is the strictest form of lockdown, given the negative economic implications. These include a steep rise in unemployment, more companies facing bankruptcy and a higher budget deficit for the government. There are also other less economically damaging ways to control the spread of the virus such as making sure Filipinos practice minimum health standards (mask wearing, social distancing, frequent hand washing), early diagnosis through testing and contact tracing, enforcing localized lockdowns, and accelerating the vaccination process. In fact, during the past week, the government already said it had no plans to reimpose an ECQ even with the record number of infections.

If you are interested in taking the NEBOSH IGC course and the NEBOSH IGC exams while you are in Philippines, you can still do it while in Philippines. (Whether in Manila, Cebu, Makati, Davao City- any where in Philippines)
