Course content

The NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Safety and Health is a qualification designed to help those with health and safety responsibilities – for example, managers, supervisors and employee representatives – to carry out their duties at work more effectively and to protect the organisations for which they work. The NEBOSH General Certificate is the most widely held health and safety qualification in the UK, with nearly 100,000 people having gained the award since it was launched in 1989.

Assessment is by an end-of-course examination comprising two written papers – NGC1 (The management of safety and health) and NGC2 (Controlling workplace hazards) – and a practical assessment (NGC3), which consists of carrying out a health and safety inspection of a workplace and preparing a management report.

The benefits of the NEBOSH National General Certificate are many:

  • Achieve compliance with UK health and safety law
  • Cut the health and safety risks that apply in your workplace
  • Understand the principles involved in managing safety and assessing potential hazards
  • Save your company money by cutting the costs of expensive consultants, and avoiding costly remedial action
