History of NEBOSH:

The first NEBOSH examinations procured in June 1980. Applicants sit down for five papers; Law; Behavioral Science; Techniques of Safety Management; Occupational Health & Hygiene and General Science. In October 1981 membership of the NEBOSH Board was grown and comprised governments from IOSH UK government sections, various teaching formations and the Royal Society for the Anticipation of Accidents. The salutation of NEBOSH qualifications also prompted to grow around this time. In June 1982, 140 people counted for their NEBOSH Normal level certificate and 84 for the higher level certificate. By 1986, NEBOSH had increased the number of annual examination assemblies from two to three. In February 1987 NEBOSH familiarised a new qualification construction, which comprised a Certificate and a Diploma. In 1988 the Diploma level qualification was altered to feature four 3 hour exams and conclusion of a case study. Applicants scoring over 75% attained a distinction.

In the early 1990s, NEBOSH initiated to separate itself from IOSH formally. In March 1992, NEBOSH combined as a limited company with Companies House. In April 1992, NEBOSH listed as a charity with the Charity Commission and then appointed its first Chief Executive, Martin Shuttle worth, two months later. In December 1992, the NEBOSH Specialist Environmental Diploma was pushed, trailed shortly by the NEBOSH Construction Certificate. In June 1997 NEBOSH presented a credit mark to validate a high score in an exam - sitting just below a distinction. The two-part Diploma was presented in June 1998. NEBOSH enthused offices to Meridian Business Park, Leicester in 1999.

Stephen Vickers acquired up to the position of NEBOSH Chief Executive in April 2000. Six months later the Experiences and Curriculum Authority (QCA) - now The Office of the Qualifications and Examinations Regulator (Ofqual) credited NEBOSH as a donation body. In March 2001, designator letters were presented for owners of NEBOSH higher level awards. In September 2001, almost 22 years after the creation of NEBOSH, Dolores Lavander of West Midlands Fire Service (WMFS) became the 50,000th NEBOSH examination candidate. A performance to mark the event was held at WMFS head office. More new qualifications, the NEBOSH Fire Certificate and NEBOSH International General Certificate, were launched. Current NEBOSH Chief Managerial, Teresa Budworth, appropriated up her role in March 2006. Two months later the first ever NEBOSH Graduation Ceremony took place at the University of Warwick. A further landmark was attained in June 2006 when the 100,000th NEBOSH General Certificate was given to David Marsh. In October 2006, NEBOSH enthused offices to its current location of 5 Dominus Way, Meridian Business Park, Leicester.
