What Health and Safety training have you taken recenty?

I did IOSH and NEBOSH. What other H&S training is there available?

How recent is recent?
Always having to do h&s courses online.
First aid renewal a couple of weeks ago.
Social distancing apart from working in pairs. Then it was gloves & mask's

IOSH course and I've also done a caretaker essentials course (covers a bit of everything). Just completed my First Aid this week.

Re: What Health and Safety training have you taken recenty?

I completed my NCRQ Level 6 Certificate in Applied Health and Safety. I'd highly recommend NCRQ to anyone, they are quite quickly taking over NEBOSH's market share because it is less academic than NEBOSH.

For context, I am a Site Manager and from next week, Business Manager. I wouldn't expect a caretaker to complete this course, it is geared towards those who coordinate/are responsible for health and safety in their organisation. There are other shorter courses available through NCRQ and NEBOSH that may be better suited.

Anything like IOSH and NEBOSH, then my lot just dont want to know. The price puts them off. If it cant be found and taught online for under fifty quid then its a pointless conversation

The NEBOSH qualification is internationally recognised, do you know if the NCRQ is as well?

I ask because I'm doing the NEBOSH award now and I aim to move to Canada.

From the website:
Are these qualifications accredited by IOSH or IIRSM?
The Level 6 Certificate in Applied Health and Safety is accredited by IOSH as meeting the academic requirements of Associate (AIOSH) or Technical (TechIOSH) Membership, and by IIRSM as meeting the requirements for Associate (AIIRSM) Membership.

The Level 6 Diploma in Applied Health and Safety is accredited by IOSH as meeting the academic requirements of Graduate (GradIOSH) or Chartered (CMIOSH) Membership, and by IIRSM as meeting the requirements for full (MIIRSM) Membership.


Can I undertake these qualifications outside the UK?
The current qualifications have a strong foundation in the legal system and legislation of England and Wales, and are suitable for students who live and work, or intend to work, in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

You can still complete these qualifications outside of the UK, however you should bear in mind that some aspects of the syllabus may not be relevant in your country.
I can confirm the course content naturally covers UK-specific legislation, but the general health and safety content, in my opinion, is relevant everywhere in the world. Hope that helps.
