NEBOSH (The National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health) has welcomed Lord Young's call for all health and safety consultants to be suitably qualified.

NEBOSH Chief Executive, Teresa Budworth, who is also part of a working party developing the new Occupational Safety Consultants Register, said: "To offer professional health and safety advice you should be professionally qualified. It's as simple as that.

"At NEBOSH, our courses and qualifications have always promoted a sensible and proportionate approach to risk. Sensible safety is nothing new. It's how qualified health and safety people do it."
