Testimonials

“NEBOSH is delighted to have been given the opportunity to devise the health and safety programme for the 18 January at Intersec. We have made sure that “NEBOSH Day” will be of real value to delegates. Thank you to the senior health and safety leaders who have agreed to present and share their expertise and insights with our audience on the day.”

“I was very excited to be asked to be part of NEBOSH Day at Intersec here in Dubai. NEBOSH is an organisation that I have been associated with for nearly 15 years, and this is a great way for our collaboration to continue. I will be delivering a presentation on the recently approved UAE Standard “Occupational Health and Safety Management – Governance and Leadership Top Management requirements for UAE.S ISO 45001:2019” UAE.S 5052:2022 which encourages and supports a more proactive approach when it comes to health and safety. I am looking forward to being involved and learning and exchanging ideas with colleagues on the 18 January!”
