The NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety is designed to equip supervisors, managers and employee representatives with a thorough knowledge of the essentials of health and safety. This is widely regarded as an industry standard qualification, with more than 75% of safety, health and environment (SHE) jobs listing it as a formal requirement.
For this reason, many people study for the certificate as one of the first steps towards a health and safety career, either with or without a previous qualification such as IOSH Managing Safely.
During the two-week course, delegates will gain a thorough knowledge of health and safety legislation and its practical applications. They will learn how to spot workplace hazards and how to prevent them, as well as to assist in your company's safety management programme.
All this will be taught in clear, jargon-free language with a focus on real-world applications, allowing delegates to take their new skills into the workplace from the very start.
On successful completion of two exams, delegates will be awarded a certificate from the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH) – a nationally recognised and respected independent industry body.
The practical assessment must be submitted 5 working days after the date of the written examination. This does not include weekends or bank holidays.
Learning with the British Safety Council will enable delegates to benefit from our extensive experience in health, safety and environmental management, acquired over the last 60 years. During this time, we’ve educated people from all over the world and have developed expert tuition methods, using the most modern teaching techniques.
