NEBOSH HSE Certificate in Health and Safety Leadership Excellence


Please email your expression of interest


The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and NEBOSH have joined forces to develop a new one day health and safety qualification for senior business leaders or those aspiring to this position.

The interactive, thought provoking content shows how leaders can influence health and safety performance and culture through their actions and behaviours.

Who should take the Health and Safety Leadership Excellence qualification?

This qualification is specifically aimed at individuals currently in a position of senior leadership, e.g. Board Director, H&S Director, Operations Director, HR Director, Finance Director, as well as others in senior leadership positions, or those who are aspiring to become a senior leader. The course covers financial and legal reasons for good health and safety leadership and also focuses on how leaders can become better advocates and influencers in relation to health and safety.

If you are unsure whether this course is right for you, please contact us by email.

Find out how The FA (Football Association) have used the NEBOSH HSE Certificate in Health and Safety Leadership Excellence to gain colleagues buy-in and drive an engaging health and safety culture.

What does the course cover and how is it assessed?

The one day qualification covers the following topics:

  • What health and safety leadership means
  • The moral, legal and financial reasons for good health and safety leadership
  • The links between health and safety leadership and culture
  • What the different leadership styles are
  • How human failures can impact performance and culture
  • The HSE's model of effective health and safety leadership
  • How leaders can build effective relationships with the workforce

The assessment will be in the form of reflective statements undertaken throughout the course.

These will show how the student's knowledge, skills and behaviours may have both positive and negative effects on health and safety performance in their organisation.

Students will also need to make a commitment to a leadership intervention that will improve health and safety management within their sphere of workplace influence.
