NEBOSH National Certificate in Construction Safety and Health


The NEBOSH Construction Certificate is a qualification both for those with construction management responsibilities and for those who are required to provide routine day-to-day advice on health, safety and welfare in construction work. The programme of study broadly mirrors that of the National General Certificate.  However, due to the specific nature of the award, the opportunity arises to convert key construction issues in rather more technical detail than would be appropriate for a general health & safety award.

The Construction Certificate therefore contains additional units and requires a slightly longer programme of study than its counterpart.  It is thus designed to cover general health and safety issues within a construction context as well as placing emphasis on the specific construction issues that make the industry amongst the most dangerous in which to work.

Content:                   The Unitised National Certificate in Construction Health & Safety will consist of free units:

NGC1 Management of health and safety

NCC1 Managing and controlling hazards in construction activities

NCC2 Construction health and safety practical application

Assessment:           NGC1 and NCC1 are assessed by written examination and the NCC2 by practical examination


Please note that unit NGC1 also forms part of the NEBOSH National General Certificate and the 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 Certificate in Construction Health & Safety. 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
