Overview of NEBOSH’s new strategic plan

NEBOSH, the National Examination Board for Occupational Safety and Health, has unveiled its strategic plan for 2024-2027, emphasising an increased societal impact through its new social purpose programme.

The strategy, dubbed “Developing Our Potential,” seeks to extend NEBOSH’s influence across more countries and sectors while continuing to offer high-quality qualifications and assessments.

This expansion includes significant investments in technical infrastructure to enhance innovative learning and assessment methods, along with the introduction of a new online portal for learners.

Expansion and educational excellence

Andy Shenstone, the Chief Executive of NEBOSH, highlighted the charity’s enduring commitment to educational excellence in health and safety.

He noted the critical need to broaden the organisation’s reach: “For over 40 years, NEBOSH has been trusted to deliver exceptional health and safety qualifications, and our pursuit of educational excellence will continue with this new strategy.

“But we also have enormous potential – and need – to extend our reach and increase our impact; when 2.3 million people a year lose their lives because of a work-related accident or disease, it is clear that there are many workers, communities and industries in need of health and safety education.

“I am particularly excited by the introduction of our new social purpose programme which aims to reach these people.”
