Level 6 International Diploma in Safety Engineering is customized qualification which is certified by NCFE UK and Accredited by IOSH for GRADIOSH Membership. The Qualification has been delivered by Redhat safety Training and Consulting and developed by Proftech Leading Institute and has been certified by NCFE UK.
The diploma is highly beneficial for those professionals who have some safety and engineering roles in the organization. The diploma is very unique and is much better than the available options because unlike another diploma in OH&S, it is based on skill oriented basic engineering knowledge necessary for day to day occupational safety and health affairs of the organizations.
You are eligible to apply for this diploma if you meet any of the following requirements:
1- Level 3 certification in OH&S (IOSH Accredited only) + 3 years OH&S experience OR
2- A graduate degree in Science subjects from reputable university (Min 60% marks) + 1 years OH&S experience OR
3- Four years engineering degree (B.E or BS Engg with Min 60% aggregate marks or equivalent CGPA) from a reputable university
Note: A “Declaration Form” must be filled by each student as part of the registration confirming the qualification and experience criteria is met. Those who do not meet the registration requirements will not be registered. Registration requirement has been introduced to increase the pass percentage for the qualification and attracting only those professionals who have bright chances of success in IDSE.
Qualification is assessed via 2 closed book written exams (1 Ea for both units) comprising a total 150 Marks in each assessment. Passing marks are 50% i.e. 75 Marks for each unit. Maximum time allowed for each examination is 5 hours.
The qualification has been carefully designed to meet industry requirements for occupational safety and health provisions. The existing diploma in OH&S provides generic information about occupational health and safety. Both units of IDSE have been designed in such a manner that the successful professionals of Unit 1 will be able to establish, implement, maintain, manage and continually improve the OH&S Management system based on any standard including OHSAS 18001 or upcoming ISO 45001. Similarly, Unit 2 has given more emphasis on the engineering related skill, knowledge and information for the requirement of occupational safety and health provisions at the workplace. Unit 2 provides the professionals with the core knowledge of engineering which they can translate into skill base for engineering design assessments, material failure modes, incident investigations, reliability engineering, structure analysis, equipment selection, engineering risk assessments, engineering control designs and assessments, mathematical and geometric calculations and much more.
