NEBOSH develops new qualification with HSE

The health, safety and environmental management examination board, NEBOSH, has developed a new qualification in partnership with the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

The new qualification: the NEBOSH HSE Certificate in Process Safety Management has been designed to give specialist knowledge and understanding to managers, supervisors and safety professionals working in potentially hazardous process industries such as oil and gas, chemicals, plastics and pharmaceuticals.

The qualification aims to increase understanding of process safety management, develop knowledge of risk management and raise awareness of the hazards and corresponding controls associated with processing activities.  The five-day qualification will be piloted from February 2017 and will be assessed by multiple-choice examination.

Barry Wilkes, Director of Strategy said: “This new qualification is the result of a unique collaboration between the HSE and NEBOSH combining our ability to deliver strong, credible vocational OSH qualifications with HSE’s industry-leading knowledge and expertise.

“We anticipate that it will be highly regarded and sought after by employers.”

Karen Russ, Science and Commercial Director, HSE said: “It has been a real pleasure to co-develop this new qualification with NEBOSH.

“We hope that by combining our strengths, this qualification will help to significantly improve understanding and further reduce health and safety risks in the process industries worldwide.”

The pilot courses will be run by selected course providers starting in February with the first pilot examination taking place in mid-May. Find out more on NEBOSH’s website.

Lets just hope that it is not based on learning the applicable regulations off by heart but dealing with actually on-site safety issues.
