NEBOSH IGC – BLENDED COURSE BENEFITS FOR EMPLOYERS
Despite the increasing global recognition of the importance of health and safety at work, accidents and work-related ill-health continue to affect all types of workplaces and occupations. The ILO estimates that 6,300 people daily as a result of occupational accidents or work-related diseases – more than 2.3 million deaths worldwide per year. At least 10% of these deaths are due to the 337 million accidents at work that occur annually. There are an estimated 500 – 2000 non-fatal injuries for every fatal injury (including 160 million cases of work-related disease), many of which result in lost earnings, lost jobs and permanent disability and poverty.
In addition to the direct costs of sick pay and absence, employers can find themselves dealing with criminal prosecution, claims for compensation, adverse publicity and harm to both business reputation and profitability. In the UK alone, the estimated annual cost of occupational injury and illness in 2005/6 is £3 billion to UK employers and £13 billion to the British economy. In 2003, the ILO estimated the cost to the global economy at an estimated $1.25 trillion ($1,250,000 million).
The vast majority of workplace injuries, accidents and ill-health are avoidable by good health and safety management. By saving money, improving productivity and raising workforce morale, effective health and safety management should be recognised as an essential element of a successful management strategy.
Many larger organisations choose the NEBOSH qualifications as a key part of their supervisors’ or management development programme. By ensuring that line managers have a sound understanding of the principles of risk management they build an effective safety culture in the organisation. Smaller organisations, operating in lower risk environments, often choose the NEBOSH International General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety as the appropriate qualification for the manager taking the lead on health and safety issues.
