The NEBOSH International Diploma in Occupational Health & Safety is a structured programme that provides the core knowledge required by today’s health and safety practitioner. All occupational health and safety practitioners 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 they 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 occupational health and safety practitioner.
