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 ENTO. 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)

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 GC3 is assessed by one two-hour practical project carried out in the candidate’s own workplace. The assessment must normally be taken within 14 days of a written examination. The practical project 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.

The Guide to the NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety contains the full syllabus and sample examination papers and is available from the website shop. Past examination papers and examiners reports (which include the relevant question paper) are also available from the website shop. They do not contain model answers, but provide guidance as to what the examiners look for when marking scripts.

    An enjoyable course with exceptional experience and industry knowledge. Course content was backed up with Willie’s experience, and other students experience and working examples. In this classroom environment Willie was able to stimulate a lot of discussion and promote a deeper understanding on how all elements are incorporated into the workplace.

    Willies approach to the course (which was delivered in-company) ensured the group were engaged and contributed a range of ideas and discussions which enhanced the experience and aided our understanding of the NEBOSH syllabus. The real examples, well timed humour and relevant stories gained from industry experience brought what could potentially be a dry subject to life and made it an enjoyable course. The guidance, support and access to a wide range of reference material was invaluable and I would not hesitate to recommend Willie for your training needs. Thank-you!
