NEBOSH GENERAL CERTIFICATE
What does the qualification cover?
The NEBOSH National General Certificate covers the main legal requirements for health and safety in the UK, identification and control of workplace hazards, and the practical application of this knowledge. The syllabus is mapped to the National Occupational Standards for Health and Safety owned by Proskills. No previous health and safety knowledge is required but candidates should note the assessment includes a requirement to write a short report.
The qualification is divided into three units, each of which is assessed separately:
Management of Health and Safety (NGC1)
Controlling workplace hazards (GC2)
Health and safety practical application (GC3)
What are the benefits for employers?
A safer workplace – Health and safety is important. It protects people from injury and loss of life. People with a NEBOSH General Certificate know how to help their employer avoid prosecution, litigation, absence costs and loss of reputation, wherever they operate.
Assurance – Employers whose staff are NEBOSH qualified is an employer committed to health and safety. A NEBOSH General Certificate provides an assurance of safety - something that can help employers achieve recognised standards and can even win new business.
Return on investment – An employee with a NEBOSH General Certificate has a practical set of skills that brings real value to the modern global workplace.
The modular qualification structure and variety of available course formats enables candidates and employers to arrange training around the needs of the business. Many NEBOSH training providers will offer in-company courses, to allow the inclusion of material specifically relevant to the organisation’s workplace.
How is it assessed?
Units NGC1 and GC2 are taught units each assessed by a two-hour written examination. Each written examination consists of ten ‘short-answer’ questions and one ‘long-answer’ question. All questions are compulsory. Candidate scripts are marked by external examiners appointed by NEBOSH.
Unit NGC3 is assessed by one two-hour practical examination carried out in the candidate's own workplace. The assessment must normally be taken within 10 working days of a written examination. The practical examination is internally assessed by the programme organiser and externally moderated by NEBOSH.
Candidates will be awarded a unit certificate for each unit passed. Once a candidate has successfully completes all three units (NGC1, GC2 and GC3), the overall qualification parchment will be issued.
