NEBOSH General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety

Overview:

Managers and Supervisors making day to day decisions have a crucial role to play in any organisation’s Health & Safety management system, for it is the quality of these decisions that will determine successful outcomes. Success in Health & Safety is not only a legal requirement but is also a precursor to good management in general.

The Certificate course is a demanding but rewarding experience that is designed to compliment existing managerial skills.  The core competence is transferable across all employment sectors, which makes the qualification highly respected and valued by employers. 

Holders of the National General Certificate have demonstrated that they possess a broad base of knowledge and understanding of Health & Safety such that they can manage their everyday activities safely – with Health & Safety as an integral part rather than a bolt-on extra.  With the Certificate you will be able to make a valuable contribution to reducing both losses to your organisation and harm to your fellow employees.

Content:

The unitised National General Certificate will consist of three units:

NGC1 -         Management of Safety & Health

GC2 -          Controlling Workplace Hazards

GC3 -          Practical/Inspection

Assessment:           NGC1 and GC2 are assessed by written examination and the GC3 by practical examination.

 

Please note that unit NGC1 also forms part of the NEBOSH National Certificate in Construction and the NEBOSH Certificate of Fire Safety and Risk Management. Candidates who have already achieved this unit as part of either qualification within the last five years can count it towards achieving their National General Certificate. Unit A of the National Diploma achieved within the last five years can also count towards the NGC1 but the result for this unit is capped at a pass grade.
