Qualifications & TrainingAn Honours Degree in England; the equivalent L6 NVQ / HNC in Wales, or the Scottish equivalent, can be desirable, particularly in engineering, construction, law or health and safety. Some positions may require chartered status with a relevant body. However, industry experience is often very important too, so entrants with other qualifications might be considered, for example: IOSH Working Safely, IOSH Managing Safely, or CITB Site Safety Plus training courses.
