It’s now more Health & Safety AND environmental at OMS

NEBOSH has entered into a new and exciting partnership with IEMA and as of the 13th of June students who hold the NEBOSH Certificate in Environmental Management, and whose result was declared from June 2013 onwards, are eligible for Associate membership of IEMA.

This means that they can access a wide range of membership benefits and get professional recognition with the AIEMA designatory letters.

Both NEBOSH qualifications and IEMA membership are highly respected by colleagues and employers.

New research suggests that more than half of health and safety managers are now responsible for managing environmental issues at work.

During April and May of this year NEBOSH (The National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health) analysed one hundred job adverts for health and safety management roles. Salaries for the positions advertised ranged from £30K to £65K, although several went beyond these amounts with one job attracting an annual salary of £100,000.

Over half (55%) of the advertised positions mentioned responsibility for environmental management. And while the majority of vacancies were for "health and safety managers" or "health and safety advisers," a large proportion of the jobs advertised (42%) included "environmental" within the job titles - such as "Health, Safety & Environmental (HSE) Manager" and "Health, Safety, Environmental and Quality (HSEQ) Manager."
