People applying for health and safety roles in office space in Milton Keynes and the rest of the UK must hold accredited qualifications in the field in order to be considered for the role, new research has shown.
A study by the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH) Jobs Barometer found that high-level health and safety qualifications were required for most jobs in the industry, HR Magazine reported.
Membership of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) was also essential in most of the adverts.
NEBOSH chief executive Teresa Budworth said: “It’s clear that anyone seeking a job as a health and safety manager or advisor in the UK will struggle to find a position without appropriate level qualifications.”
John Dian, director of Safe. D, told IOSH that the correct qualifications provide the framework to enhance a career and provide potential employers with a clear indication of your level and skills.
