NISO is pleased to announce an innovative programme in Safety Management. This programme, offered through our partnership with TU Dublin, offers a particularly flexible curriculum, whereby students can design their own route to qualification at Level 7. Courses may be delivered in class, online or hybrid, excluding Workplace Noise Measurement and Environmental Noise Measurement.
Whether you are entirely new to safety management or you would like to upskill in a particular area or update an existing qualification, you will find a subject of interest. This programme is particularly relevant in the post-Brexit era as subject matter covered by UK professional organisations are no longer recognised in Europe. We are proud to be an Irish safety training organisation delivering, for the first time, a comprehensive set of safety management qualifications that reflect the Irish and European legislative and regulatory environment.
Employers, too, can benefit from their employees studying for any one of the courses on offer, reducing the need to outsource skills. There are undoubtedly advantages to having an employee who can carry out essential safety work, including fire or chemical risk assessments, safety statements, and noise surveys. We can also customise a course or module to make it specific to the risks and hazards pertaining to your organisation.
From a variety of 12 individual courses, you can choose any one or more and study to obtain CPD Certification in that subject. A single CPD certificate course is worth five ECTS at Level 7 of the National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ).
The programme also offers the opportunity to combine eight courses to achieve a Diploma in Safety Management at Work. For this diploma, a total of eight courses, leading to 40 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System), must be completed. There are two compulsory courses, Workplace Safety Manager PART 1 and 2. You can then add any other six courses you choose to qualify. You will enjoy the flexibility to study the courses in any order that works for you over any length of time.
Some of the registered / participating organisations on the Safety Management Programme include:

You can study any of the courses as a single course to achieve certification in that subject. You may also combine any number of courses that interest you to obtain multiple certifications. A single CPD certificate course is worth five ECTS at Level 7 of the National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ). Completing 60 ECTS credits is the equivalent of one year of full time study at Level 7
