IOSH or NEBOSH London Training: Which is Right for You?

It’s important to find the course that meets the needs of your role regarding health and safety responsibilities; so should you attend your local IOSH or NEBOSH London training course? We’re here to help you make the right decision.

NEBOSH Certificates – A Great Foundation for Health and Safety Careers

NEBOSH (The National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health) has established their general and sector specific certificates as widely respected and globally recognised qualifications. With in-depth training, NEBOSH certificates equip individuals with the knowledge to expertly understand and implement;

  • legal elements of Health and Safety policies
  • methods of controlling hazards and risks in their workplace
  • safe systems of work and reporting
  • identification of risks as well as management solutions
  • the process of reporting and investigating accidents


With comprehensive training from RISK’s NEBOSH London based courses, no previous knowledge is required and the fast track learning schedule with RISK Training allows for 3 module exams to be taken straight after 5 days of learning for the first 2 modules (10 days of training inclusive).

As a more intensive course, the NEBOSH certificate is accepted by IOSH in meeting the requirements of a Tech IOSH Membership and NEBOSH accredited qualifications are often stipulated as requirements by new employers.
