This e-Assessment Award focuses on innovation and effective implementation of a project in one or more countries outside of the main country of operation. NEBOSH operated from Leicester in the United Kingdom. We moved all of our core assessments from paper-based live invigilated examinations to online closed book assessments with surrounding quality assurance features. This was achieved in approximately 140 countries in a short period to enable our learners to continue their learning journey in Health and Safety during the pandemic.
