The NEBOSH National Diploma in Occupational Health & Safety is the UK’s premier health and safety qualification designed specifically for those who want to forge a career in health and safety. For example, it is ideal for health and safety managers, advisors and consultants. It also provides a basis for progressing to postgraduate study. Many MSc programmes run by universities in the UK accept this diploma as a full or partial entry requirement.

It meets the academic requirements for graduate membership of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (GradIOSH). In addition, the diploma can enable you to attain full membership of the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management.

Also, combined with further experience and professional development, it meets the standards required to achieve Chartered Safety Practitioner (CMIOSH) status. If you prefer to obtain CMIOSH status via a practical, evidence based route, you may wish to consider the NVQ Level 5 Diploma.

Course programme

Course Structure

The course is split into three separate units with taught content:

  • Unit A: Managing Health and Safety.
  • Unit B: Hazardous Substances / Agents.
  • Unit C: Workplace and Work Equipment Safety.
  • Unit DNI: Application of health and safety in the workplace. This unit involves a workplace based assessment that tests the practical application of knowledge gained in units A-C.
Ongoing Assessment

To keep track of your progress towards your final exams, you will complete a study planner. The course materials include regular revision questions and activities to help you test your own progress. These activities can be discussed with your tutors at any time.

You will also submit several tutor marked assignments to us for marking and feedback – these are practice exams that will be marked as NEBOSH would mark them to assist you with preparation for the final exam.

Final Assessment

All the taught units are assessed by a written three-hour exam.

Contact our Head Office for more information on the NEBOSH exam registration cut-off dates.
