The NCRQ Diploma in Applied Health and Safety is the most popular
diploma-level health and safety qualification in the UK.
Since was release in 2015, the NCRQ Diploma rapidly overtook the NEBOSH Diploma to become the preferred qualification for health and safety professionals in the UK.
The NEBOSH Diploma was considered by NCRQ and the former Chief Executive of HSE to not be fit for purpose, with a focus on reciting facts rather than a proper understanding and ability to apply information in the real world. The NCRQ Diploma was developed by former HSE leaders and some of the biggest employers in the UK and Europe – including BBC, Royal Mail and Siemens plc – to address these concerns and provide a qualification that met the needs of employers, regulators, and importantly the safety professionals themselves.
We don’t want to bore people with details, but the Advertising Standards Authority requires us to provide information to demonstrate that we are the most popular health and safety qualification in the UK. So here it is.
