In our student success stories, we get to know some of our NEBOSH & IOSH students and find out more about their health & safety career and qualifications. In this article, we meet Janine, Office Manager, from Essex

How did you find the NEBOSH National Diploma?

I thoroughly enjoyed the Diploma course – it has allowed me to significantly develop in my job role. I am now more aware of the legal regulations and our responsibilities as an employer. I feel more confident in writing risk assessments, as I can apply knowledge regarding appropriate controls to them. 

How was your experience of Phoenix health and safety training?

The support from Phoenix is incredible. I was struggling with some elements of the unit and straight away one of the tutors called me to guide me through. The practice papers were marked quickly with excellent feedback throughout. 

Even if you are studying by distance learning, they are on hand to give study tips and advice. The revision days, which are included as part of the course, are very useful in giving top tips for the exam. 

I can’t thank the tutors enough for all of their support and encouragement, they are on hand any time for help and guidance.  

Without the support of Phoenix in the run-up to the exam, I would have struggled to achieve the result that I did.

What difference will this NEBOSH qualification make to your current role and/or your career?

The Diploma has given me a greater understanding of employer responsibilities and the regulations. I now have more in-depth knowledge of control measures for risk and method statements, plus it has provided me with opportunities for career progression within the Health and Safety field. 

Having this NEBOSH qualification also gives our customers confidence that we as a company take health and safety seriously. Health and safety is now more embedded within the core of our business.
