Why choose the NEBOSH National Diploma?

Why choose the NEBOSH National Diploma?

Some helpful Q&A's from a recent delegate.

How did you become involved in health and safety?
Through working in construction for 30 years I have always been involved in various aspects of health and safety, however following 8 years as a clerk of works, I felt that I needed more of a challenge; somewhere I could make a difference and influence others to take more care through better working practices. In 2000 I completed the NEBOSH General Certificate and found that this was where I was destined to work

Why the NEBOSH Diploma?
I was fortunate enough to be given a chance of becoming a safety professional following a company reorganisation where I chose to continue studies through ACT Associates for the NEBOSH diploma which is a qualification recognised globally and gives the recipient the confidence to know they have the knowledge to advance in their health and safety career.

What was the most memorable part of your diploma training?
The most memorable parts of the Diploma was starting the training, seeing how in depth the content and studying was going to be and wondering what I had chosen to undertake as this was more brain teasing than anything else I had committed to. The second most memorable part of the training was the trainer, (Janice) who’s knowledge and teaching methods are unsurpassed as she gave every student the information and opportunity required to pass this prestigious diploma.

What’s the best advice in your career, you’ve ever been given?
The best advice I have ever been given throughout my career was by an ex military Sergeant Major, who told me a simple statement which I always abide by. IF YOU FAIL TO PLAN: YOU PLAN TO FAIL. This can be put into any context in any situation and can help you avoid potential problems before they arise, by planning well in advance.

What do you hope to have achieved in the next 5 years?
Within the next five years I would like to be in a position to be managing a team of safety professionals all striving towards the same goal, of minimising injuries in industry.
