Nebosh to promote new safety management qualification

DUBAI, January 15, 2018

Nebosh, the leading health, safety and environmental management awarding body, will be promoting a brand new qualification and the availability of an existing qualification in Arabic at the upcoming Intersec expo in Dubai, UAE.

One of the world's largest trade fair for security, safety, and fire protection, Intersec runs from January 21 to 23 at Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.

The event presents an opportunity for delegates to talk to Nebosh about its new qualification, the Nebosh HSE Certificate in Process Safety Management, developed in partnership with the UK’s health and safety regulator the Health and Safety Executive, said experts.

This certificate-level qualification has been designed for high-hazard industries where process safety management is critically important.

This introductory-level, one-day qualification provides understanding of environmental impacts, responsibility, and risk control, and can be tailored to specific industry or company requirements, they stated.
By making the qualification available in Arabic, even more people will be able to make a contribution to help their organisations reduce waste, improve energy efficiency, achieve cost savings and help protect the environment, they added.

Matthew Powell-Howard, Nebosh's qualifications development manager, said: "The rapid economic development of many Arabic-speaking countries - such as the UAE - presents a variety of environmental challenges such as air pollution, waste management and high carbon footprints."

"The Environmental Awareness at Work qualification helps all kinds of organisations to give their employees a greater understanding of environmental issues and how to manage them," he stated.

"By making it available in Arabic, we hope it will be even more accessible to businesses wanting to make positive changes in managing their environmental responsibilities and culture," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
