NEBOSH National Certificate in Construction Health & Safety & NEBOSH NGC1


The NEBOSH National Construction Certificate is aimed at Supervisors, Managers and CDM co-ordinators within the construction industry who are required to ensure that activities under their control are undertaken safely. It is likely to prove useful for those concerned with the management of buildings who may need to ensure that contractors are working safely. The qualification is also appropriate for supervisors and managers working in other industries such as utilities, and industries where temporary workplaces are a feature of their activities.

It covers a broad range of construction hazards and the means by which they can be controlled. It includes the main legal requirements relating to construction work and enables students to undertake effective safety inspections on a construction site. The content has been revised in line with the new Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007.

The NEBOSH National Construction Certificate consists of three units; each separately assessed (enabling students to choose to take individual units in any order over a five year period).

Unit NGC1 (Management of health and safety) is common to the NEBOSH National Construction Certificate, the National General Certificate and the Certificate in Fire Safety and Risk Management, enabling students to combine units across NEBOSH qualifications.

Students do not need to re-sit any units already successfully achieved providing they were gained within the last five years.
