Overview of the Course

NEBOSH Courses at Business Solutions, Bury College

NEBOSH courses provide delegates with a good foundation in health and safety for managers, supervisors and staff with health and safety among their day to day responsibilities. The qualifications are widely taken as a first step towards a career in health and safety and are accepted by IOSH – the institution of Occupational Safety and Health.

Employers benefit from:- A safer workplace – protecting people from injury and loss of life and helping the organisation avoid prosecution, litigation, absence costs and loss of reputation, wherever they operate. Assurance – demonstrating that the workplace is committed to working towards recognised Health & Safety standards. Return on Investment – provides a practical set skills that bring real value to the modern global workplace.

Delegates can choose to take the examined units in any order, and will receive a certificate denoting their achievement for each unit that they pass. When all units making up the qualification have been successfully passed, the student will receive the award parchment.

 

NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Health & Safety

This qualification is the most widely held health and safety qualification in the UK with over 175,000 people having gained the award since it was launched in 1989.

Managers, supervisors and staff from all types of organisations who need a broad understanding of health and safety issues take this qualification. The certificate helps them manage risks effectively. Many people take this qualification as a first step in a career in health and safety. It provides a valuable overview, and is a sound basis for further professional study.

This course 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. No previous health and safety knowledge is required but candidates should note the assessment includes a requirement to write a short report.

Entry requirements – There are no specific barriers, in terms of academic qualifications, skills or experience to do this course however, we would advise all delegates to have completed the IOSH Managing Safely or an equivalent health & safety qualification, as this will help delegates to have a basic knowledge of health & safety. It should be noted that currently the assessments are offered, and must be answered, in English only. The qualification includes a requirement to write a short report based on the candidate’s own workplace, which must also be in English.

The qualification is divided into three units, each of which is assessed separately. Candidates will need to pass all three units within a five year period to achieve the qualification:

  • Unit 1 – Management of Health and Safety (NGC1) is divided into 5 elements (listed below), all of which are classroom taught and assessed by a 2 hour written exam and consists of 10 ‘short answer’ questions (8 marks each) and one ‘long answer’ question (20 marks), all questions are compulsory. Delegate’s scripts are marked by NEBOSH external examiners. The course for this unit takes place 1 day a week for 6 weeks with a recommendation of 23 hours of private study time
