The November 2017 submission date for Unit D assignments was the final opportunity to enter a report based on the 2010 Diploma syllabus. Those who need to resubmit are able to do so in February, May and August 2018.
All first-time submissions MUST now be in accordance with the latest syllabus and comply with the Unit DNI specification.
In order to assist all candidates, we have produced a detailed Briefing on the successful completion of the Unit DNI assignment. This is designed to accompany NEBOSH’s own guidance which includes a section-by-section breakdown as well as the examiners’ marking scheme.
The aim of the new assignment is for candidates to carry out a review of the arrangements for managing health and safety in a workplace and to produce justified, proportionate recommendations to improve health and safety performance. It gives students the opportunity to demonstrate the knowledge and understanding gained from their studies of Units A/IA, B/IB and C/IC of the National/International Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety syllabus in a vocational setting.
The DNI assignment should contain:
- An Executive Summary;
- An introduction that sets the scene by stating clear aims and objectives and a description of the methodology used to carry out the assignment. The introduction should also include a description of the chosen workplace and the role of the health and safety practitioner to set a context for the assignment;
- A review and critical analysis of how health and safety is currently managed by the organisation in which the candidate reviews leadership, management, worker involvement, competence, compliance and risk profile;
- An evaluation to identify the top three priorities where improvements should be made;
- Conclusions that summarise the main issues identified and lead to justified, proportionate recommendations based on the outcome of the review;
- Bibliography; and
Unit DNI assignments must be submitted directly to NEBOSH. Please be aware that NEBOSH uses text-comparison software to detect any plagiarism.
