What does the qualification cover?

The NEBOSH International General Certificate (IGC) covers the principles relating to health and safety, identification and control of workplace hazards and the practical application of this knowledge.  The IGC syllabus takes a risk management approach based on best practice and international standards, such as the International Labour Organisation (ILO) codes of practice.  Local laws and cultural factors may form part of the study programme where relevant and appropriate. 

The qualification also features a practical workplace assessment.

The International General Certificate is divided into three units, each of which is assessed separately:

  • Management of international health and safety (IGC1)
  • Control of international workplace hazards (IGC2)
  • International health and safety practical application (IGC3)
