These publications are an excellent reference source for those active at NVQ
Level 5, or undertaking University Diploma programmes and equivalent
qualifications. They are also a valuable reference source for qualified
health and safety practitioners and those with line management responsibilities
for health and safety practitioners and those with line management
responsibilities for health and safety.
The books, where appropriate, are supported by a variety of photographs and
sketches; together with an abridged reference to legislation which students
have found particularly useful.
The NEBOSH National Diploma is accredited by the Scottish Qualifications
Authority (SQA) at Level 10 in the Scottish Credit and Qualifications
Framework (SCQF). For users in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, this
is broadly comparable to a Vocationally-Related Qualification (VRQ) at Level
6 in the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF). Both are comparable to
Honours degree level.
The NEBOSH National Diploma syllabus is mapped against the relevant National
Occupational Standards (NOS) for Health and Safety (Practitioner units) and
reflects the management model in HSG65 ‘Successful Health and Safety
Management’ - the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) guide on how organisations
should manage health and safety.
