Where NEBOSH IGC is headed in the next five years?


With the growth of the population and technology comes to the growth of industries, and with the growth of industries and organisations comes the need for safety. As the requirement for safety becomes a concern in every organisation, the demand for safety specialists is increasing every day. The industry of safety services has grown tremendously over the years and is expected to grow further in coming years too, for various reasons such as increasing numbers of accidents, fatalities, injuries, etc., and there is an ever-growing requirement for safety professionals by organisations across all sectors, from healthcare, construction, retail, and manufacturing, to name just a few, to protect their people and assets from harm and injury during work or while on duty at home and at other locations away from the workplace, and therefore demand for safety professionals will be higher than ever before.

In the recent past, we have seen an increase in the number of companies that require employees to be certified by a professional body to demonstrate their skill sets and knowledge on specific topics like HSE or OSHA regulations, or even to perform a risk assessment on a site before commencing work on a project or a job, which might not come naturally to everyone without proper training and education. So, it has become mandatory in many countries to be certified in order to gain employment and maintain your position within the company.

From manufacturing to construction to healthcare to utilities, all industries require safety professionals to be present in their workplace to ensure that people’s lives are safe, especially during working hours, when accidents occur frequently, resulting in injuries, medical issues, or even the death of employees if proper measures and precautions aren’t taken to ensure the safety of all those around them.

According to the International Labour Organization (ILO), 2.3 million women and men die each year as a result of work-related accidents or illnesses. There is a need for a safety expert, hence. Safety professionals are trained in risk analysis, accident prevention, first aid, emergency response, and other relevant skills that will keep you safe on the job and out of harm’s way before anything goes wrong!

Safety experts have knowledge of safety regulations and standards as well as experience with the latest trends and developments in the industry they serve within their field of expertise, such as construction, mining, manufacturing, energy production, transportation, etc. And a course like NEBOSH IGC helps learners acquire the skills necessary to manage risks and dangers in the workplace environment safely and efficiently, which ultimately helps in creating a safer work environment and reducing accidents and injuries in the workplace as well as protecting the workers from harmful substances that might be present in the workplace environment. Also, 

NEBOSH IGC is a market-driven course in health and safety management which provides career advancement opportunities for candidates in almost all sectors where they may be working or employed.

So yes! NEBOSH IGC is heading towards a bright future in the upcoming five years!

The following are the advantages of taking the NEBOSH IGC online:

The recent OBE (Open Book Examination) system introduced by NEBOSH allows learners to take their IGC exams at their homes during this pandemic period. We have seen a huge increase in the number of learners taking the Open Book exams since the implementation of the OBE system, and we are currently experiencing more examinations taken per day than on March 29th, 2020, when the first exam was launched!

This is a significant improvement over the previous OBE model’s performance over the previous two years: To make the transition to the new OBE model even easier, we streamlined and simplified the process so that anyone can take the OBE with ease.
