NEBOSH January Learner News

The ‘NEBOSH L’Oréal International Bursary: Enabling women in health and safety’ has been created to offer learning opportunities for women who want to enter or progress within the profession. Five women, based internationally, will be chosen to receive paid-for study and assessment fees for the NEBOSH International General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety.

Dee Arp, NEBOSH Chief Operating Officer and a member of the Bursary judging panel, says: “Diversity is so important; it encourages creativity and positive change within our practices – it also ensures the different people we protect in the workplace are represented in HSE strategies and programmes. That’s why I’m excited to be part of this Bursary, selecting and supporting international women to join our wonderful profession.”

Applications for the ‘NEBOSH L’Oréal International Bursary: Enabling women in health and safety’ are open from 24 January to 22 February 2023. Applicants will be asked to submit a short video which demonstrates why they aspire to work within the profession and how they feel their studies will benefit their professional development.
