The National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH) was established in 1979 and EEF has a long-standing relationship with them.  In fact, we carry NEBOSH Accreditation Number 001.  Since then we have worked alongside NEBOSH to help the health and safety sector develop meaningful and effective qualifications.

NEBOSH qualifications can be applied throughout your organisation and at varying levels of knowledge and experience.  Whether you are a supervisor or senior health and safety professional, small business owner/manager or responsible for the well-being of hundreds of employees, NEBOSH qualifications have been developed to be relevant, beneficial and instantly effective.

There are three levels of NEBOSH Qualification. The NEBOSH Award is designed for those in supervisory role or those that are safety representatives.  The NEBOSH Certificates are designed for those who lead health & safety in a lower risk business or for those starting out in a career in health & safety.  The NEBOSH Diploma is for those who either lead health & safety in a higher risk business or occupy senior management roles such as Health & Safety Director.
