The Awarding Organisation of the Year went to NEBOSH at this year’s FAB Awards celebrations in Leicester.

The FAB (Federation of Awarding Bodies) Awards recognises the contributions made by awarding organisations and their employees to education and skills in the UK over the past year.

Everyone has a pandemic story; whilst NEBOSH’s nomination outlined the exceptional work that was done to adapt and modernise, quickly, in the COVID-19 era, it also highlighted the positive impact all of its activities have on the health and safety community. An impact which can help keep even more people safe when they go to work every day.

Now in its 6th year, the FAB 2021 Awards dinner, sponsored by Creatio, was held at the end of the first day of the FAB Conference, on 11 November at the Marriott Hotel in Leicester.

NEBOSH Chief Executive Dr Chris Payne was joined by Dee Arp, Chief Commercial Officer, and April Chaplin, Head of Quality, to accept the award. Chris said: “What an achievement! To win confirms that all the work our team put in over the pandemic to ensure ‘no learner was left behind’ has been recognised by our peers and the independent judges.

“Not only this, but NEBOSH’s entry highlighted all of our other achievements from the year; reduced environmental impact, creating new assessments, training our Examiners on the new approach, developing additional educational opportunities and resources for our learners, supporting our Learning Partners…to name just a few.

“This award is a testament to Team NEBOSH and all of our supportive stakeholders. Together we are helping to make the world a healthier and safer place through quality learning.”
