|H&S National Occupational Standards...|
Most National Vocational Qualifications and their related NOSs include some element of health and safety.
However the most important generic National Occupational Standards for anybody at work to develop Health and Safety skills are those produced by Employment National Training Organisation for a Health & Safety Practitioner.
Employment NTO National Occupational Standards (NOSs)
Following consultation, the SSC considered that a range of independent 'stand alone' units, covering a range of health and safety issues, would be preferable. Many people may want to take one or two units, rather than having to cover all aspects. They was also a request to include something 'for the environment'.
Nine Units of Revised Version (2007) ENTO H&S NOSs
Several Awarding Bodies have produced awards and qualifications related to these Units. In particular, a consortium of SSCs & Awarding Bodies worked with the Health & Safety Executive Agriculture to develop these NOSs into vocational awards, appropriate for land-based industry.
