National General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety

This is the most widely held health and safety qualification in the UK with over 100,000 people currently holding this award.

The qualification provides an excellent grounding in managing hazards and risks effectively. Many people take the NEBOSH National General Certificate as a basic step towards a career in health and safety with many going on to study at higher levels.  No previous knowledge of health and safety is required.

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. Candidates should note the assessment includes a requirement to write a short report.

The qualification is divided into three units, each of which are assessed separately:

  • Management of Health and Safety (NGC1) 
  • Controlling workplace hazards (GC2) 
  • Health and Safety practical application (GC3)
