NEBOSH is a UK registered charity (No. 1010444), which means we exist for charitable purposes (the advancement of health and the saving of lives), for the public benefit. Our purpose is set out in our governing documents:
"The objects of NEBOSH shall be the preservation of health by the promotion of high standards of health, safety and environmental protection at work in particular, but not exclusively, through study and competence in risk management."
Our approach is simple. By helping individuals achieve competence in health, safety and environmental management, they in turn are equipped to protect others from the hazards arising from workplace activities.
