The NEBOSH International Diploma is designed for individuals who want to progress their career in health & safety and to develop the international knowledge and skills in order to become an international health & safety practitioner.
All occupational health & safety practitioners (OHASPs) need to have a common core of knowledge in order to practice effectively. This common core of knowledge must be transferable between the different occupational sectors in which OHASPs may work, ranging across all parts of industry, commerce and the public sector. The NEBOSH International Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety provides the knowledge and understanding that underpins competent performance as an OHASP.
There are no prerequisite entry requirements, though students will find it helpful to have completed the International General Certificate first. Students should also be aware that this is a demanding qualification - approximately equivalent to third year degree level - and therefore may find is very difficult if they do not have this background knowledge and/or the ability and application to study at this level.
The NEBOSH International Diploma course is split into four units of study, each of which is assessed separately:
- Unit A: International Management of Health and Safety
Includes: Principles of Health and Safety Management, Loss Causation and Incident Investigation, Identifying Hazards, Assessing and Evaluating Risks, Risk Control and Emergency Planning, Organisational and Human Factors, Regulating Health and Safety, Measuring Health and Safety Performance
