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 Proskills.  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)
