The NEBOSH National General Certificate is a qualification designed to help those with health and safety responsibilities, for example, managers, supervisors and employee representatives, to carry out their duties at work and more effectively and to protect the organisations for which they work. The NEBOSH General Certificate will help ensure that decisions are made from a position of knowledge across a broad range of hazards and work activities.
The NEBOSH General Certificate is the most widely held health and safety qualification in the UK with nearly 110,000 people having gained the award since it was launched in 1989.
No previous health and safety knowledge is required to undertake the NEBOSH General Certificate but students must be able to write short reports.
