What does the qualification cover?

The NEBOSH National Construction Certificate covers the main legal requirements relating to health and safety in UK construction work, identification and control of construction 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 and is supported by Construction Skills.

No previous health and safety knowledge is required although it is advisable that candidates do have an understanding of the basic practical aspects of the construction industry.  It should also be noted that the examination includes a requirement to write a short report.

The qualification has been unitised and the content revised in line with the new Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007. The qualification is divided into three units, each of which is assessed separately: 

  • Management of health and safety (NGC1)
  • Managing and controlling hazards in construction activities (NCC1)
  • Health and safety practical application (NCC2)
