NVQ 5 in Occupational Health & Safety

The level 5 NVQ in Occupational Health and Safety is a work-based qualification that is designed for persons who are appointed to provide Health and Safety assistance in organisations where there are significant hazards and complex risks.

It is essentially for those individuals who are practicing Health and Safety advisors, with responsibility for influencing policy or those who maybe aspiring to become safety consultants and members of The Institute of Occupational Safety and Health.

This qualification will allow successful candidates to apply for membership of the Institution of Occupational Safety & Health (IOSH) at Graduate level and therefore use Grad IOSH after their name.

Upon successful completion of an open book examination and a minimum of 2 years initial professional development (IPD), candidates can then achieve Chartered level membership (CMIOSH).

At a time when there is a lot of discussion about ‘COMPETENCE’ this is a qualification that measures the competence of people, who influence standards of Health and Safety within organisations.

NVQs are widely accepted as being assets to any company wishing to increase the competence of it's staff and the organisation.

They are viewed as building blocks upon which the success of your organisation can be built and are entirely consistent with other initiatives such as Investors in People and OHSAS 18001.

In addition many insurance companies see NVQs as a key element to ensuring the competence of their clients’ staff when assessing Employers' Liability Insurance.

Knowledge and experience requirements

As a Health and Safety manager you will be expected to prove that you are operating a comprehensive Health and Safety management system, which encompasses all aspects of your company’s undertakings and involves relevant employees at all levels.

You must also prove that you possess the relevant underpinning health and safety knowledge to satisfy the required standards.

Candidates with limited knowledge, experience or qualifications in the health and safety field may be considered to be suitable for this qualification, if they have the opportunity or potential to produce the required evidence and are also willing to undertake further training.
