What is NEBOSH??

NEBOSH (National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health) is a UK-based independent examination board delivering vocational qualifications in health, safety & environmental practice and management. It was founded in 1979 and has charitable status. NEBOSH offers a range of qualifications from introductory to professional level. Around 180,000 people worldwide hold a NEBOSH qualification.

NEBOSH does not deliver courses. It develops syllabuses for its qualifications and sets methods of assessment, such as examinations and practical coursework. Courses are delivered by NEBOSH Accredited Course Providers. Integrated Consultants for Quality Health Safety & Security LLC, Abu Dhabi is the accredited course provider of NEBOSH for NEBOSH IGC qualification.

Courses leading to NEBOSH qualifications attract over 30,000 candidates annually and are offered by over 400 Course Providers in 33 countries around the world. NEBOSH qualifications are recognised by relevant 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).


The NEBOSH International General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety is one of the globally recognized qualifications offered by NEBOSH. This certification has become almost a mandated certification requirement in Middle East and other part of the world for HSE professionals. A NEBOSH General Certificate is widely accepted as meeting the knowledge requirement for HSE professionals due to its Structured Syllabus.
