Launch of the revised NEBOSH Construction Certificate

NEBOSH celebrated the launch of its updated National Certificate in Construction Health and Safety, with a reception hosted by The Lord Brougham & Vaux CBE.  The qualification is intended for supervisors and managers within the construction industry who are required to ensure that activities under their control are undertaken safely.

Teresa Budworth, NEBOSH’s Chief Executive commented: “Construction workers are nearly five times more likely to be killed in an accident at work than other employees1; The NEBOSH Construction Certificate provides all professionals employed in construction with the skills and knowledge to make the industry safer”. She continued “We were very pleased that the NEBOSH Construction Certificate is cited within the Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) for the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007, as a key knowledge indicator when assessing Stage 1 competence for CDM co-ordinators”. 

At the launch reception, Lawrence Waterman, Head of Health & Safety for the Olympic Delivery Authority,  gave a presentation on the steps they are taking to ensure safety of construction workers in the preparation for the 2012 games in London to an invited audience of around 100 guests, including representatives from construction companies, NEBOSH construction training providers and NEBOSH Ambassador, the General Manager of Gulf Petrochemical Industries Co, (GPIC) in Bahrain, Mr Abdul Rahman A. Hussain Jawahery.

The qualification has been redesigned as part of the unit-based NEBOSH Certificate-level portfolio, to enable candidates to combine units across qualifications.  The first examination to the new syllabus is scheduled for December 2007.
