National General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety
The NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Safety and Health is an examined basic qualification, designed to provide a breadth of knowledge for non-specialists in occupational safety and health.
The NEBOSH course is broken down into three units:
- Unit NGCI – Management of Healthy and Safety (theory)
- Unit GC2 – Controlling workplace hazards (theory)
- Unit GC3 – Health and safety practical Application
Designed for managers, supervisors and staff from all types of organisations who need a broad understanding of health and safety issues, this certificate helps them manage risks effectively. The National General Certificate in Occupational Safety and Health is the most widely held health and safety qualification in the UK with over 160,000 people having gained the award since it was launched in 1989.
Many candidates take the exam as a first step to a career in health and safety. It provides a valuable overview of health and safety, and is a sound basis for further professional study.
The course has been designed for roles that specifically relate to health and safety at work. The course (delivered by self-study books) can be used as a stand-alone programme if necessary. Included within the programme is a tutorial support facility.
