NEBOSH, one of the world’s leading health and safety awarding bodies, has announced that its Health and Safety at Work Award will now be available in Arabic.
Already available to study in English, the Health and Safety at Work Award is a solid introduction to workplace health, safety and risk, and the qualification is applicable to all industries. By making it available in Arabic, it means that even more people can start the first steps to health and safety competence, helping to keep themselves and their colleagues safe at work.
The qualification is assessed by a workplace review so that learners apply their new knowledge by reviewing how health and safety is managed, identifying any issues present and how they are controlled and making recommendations for improvements. This makes it a great option for employers too because they can give their workforce practical skills that improve organisational health and safety performance.
Emirates Global Aluminium has delivered the qualification to over 600 operational employees, making their organisation a safer place to work; its Total Recordable Injury Frequency (TRIF) rate in 2021 was 1.06 per million hours worked. In comparison the global average TRIF rate for members of the International Aluminium Institute in 2021 was 2.8 per million hours worked.
