MAKROSAFE Holdings (Pty) Ltd is proud to announce that we have entered into a joint venture through SHEilds UK to present NEBOSH Qualifications in South Africa.

What is NEBOSH?

NEBOSH (National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health) was founded in 1979. It is a UK based independent examination board. NEBOSH delivers vocational qualifications in health, safety and environmental practice and management.

NEBOSH Health and Safety qualifications are globally recognized.

NEBOSH doesn’t deliver health and safety training courses; instead it provides syllabuses, exams and assignments to Accredited Course Providers, who in turn deliver training courses to prepare candidates for Nebosh qualifications. The qualifications are also recognised by professional membership bodies including the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM) and the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA). This means that successful candidates can apply to use letters such as TechIOSH, GradIOSH, CMIOSH, and MIIRSM after their name. A NEBOSH qualification does not automatically equate to an IOSH membership level. For example, you must submit both your NEBOSH certificate and your CV to IOSH so that they can check that you have the qualifications and experience necessary for TechIOSH. Likewise, your NEBOSH Certificate must be dated after 2002 in order for it to be considered.

Each year over 30,000 candidates take a course that leads to a NEBOSH qualification, and courses are offered in 33 countries around the world. NEBOSH qualifications range from introductory Health and Safety at Work Qualification to the professional safety practitioner level NEBOSH Diploma.

The NEBOSH Certificate

NEBOSH International General Certificate is the most popular health and safety qualification. Because it is so well known and highly regarded it is ideal if you are looking to launch a career in safety. Although it is useful to have some prior knowledge there are no formal entry requirements.

The course itself is divided into three units, the first two are assessed by exams and the third one by a practical assessment. Once successfully completed candidates meet the academic requirements for Technical Membership of IOSH (Tech IOSH) and associate membership of the IIRSM.

The NEBOSH Diploma

The NEBOSH diploma is a prestigious and highly respected qualification, ultimately enabling Chartered (CMIOSH) status. Divided into four units (three assessed by exams and one by an assignment), it’s a rigorous and demanding course which grows in popularity as safety professionals continue to recognise the benefits of holding such a qualification.

IOSH “Institution of Occupational Safety and Health”

IOSH is the world's biggest professional health and safety membership and is also the only Chartered body for health and safety professionals. A world leader in health and safety training, approximately 179,000 people take their courses every year.
