In global markets charity does not always start at home

01 April 2009

A British charity has geared up to offer training for an internationally-recognised safety management qualification which promotes high standards of accident and ill health prevention in all employment sectors in all parts of the world.

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents has become accredited to deliver the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH) International General Certificate, which is aimed at managers, supervisors and employees based outside the UK who require a broad understanding of health and safety principles and practices.

Training for the qualification takes place at the customer's premises and can therefore be tailored to the specific needs of an organisation. The first course is being delivered this week for a multinational firm in Germany. Successful completion of the course will enable candidates to meet their health and safety responsibilities, no matter which industry or part of the world they work in. For those looking to develop their careers within safety management, it also provides a good basis for progression to the prestigious NEBOSH International Diploma.

RoSPA, which was established more than 90 years ago, has delivered training for NEBOSH - the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health - for decades, and its delegates have consistently achieved high pass rates.

It also has a wealth of experience in the international sphere, providing health and safety training and consultancy solutions for businesses and organisations across the world, including in Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

Commenting on the move, Errol Taylor, RoSPA deputy chief executive, said: “It makes perfect sense to combine RoSPA’s long-established tradition of excellence in NEBOSH training with its focus on raising health and safety management standards not just in the UK but overseas.

“The UK is a world leader in terms of its approach to accident and ill health prevention. Supporting employers by helping them gain the necessary knowledge and skills to effectively safeguard their workforce is crucial.”
