National General Certificate in Occupational Safety and Health
What is the NEBOSH Certificate?
The National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH) is the leading UK examination authority in this field. The popular Certificate is for those who have local responsibilities for health and safety and require an internationally recognised measure of capability in this field. If you are a health and safety adviser in a low risk environment or if you are just starting out on a career in safety the course will provide a solid foundation on which to build your knowledge.
The Training Provider's teaching team is made up of full-time professionals who are committed to providing the high standards set by the Directors. They have a blend of experience and knowledge that sets them apart from most other training establishments. Their past is rooted in the world of industry, business and commerce. They have only one future; to provide the best NEBOSH training anywhere in the world.
You will learn about effective policies, organising your business, investigating loss, risk assessment and risk management.
It’s a practical programme which illustrates common sense approaches to managing this vital function within a business. Find out how to deal with machinery safety, hazardous chemicals, noise, electricity, fire and radiation, and put effective safety management at your fingertips.
Everyone attending the programme gets a comprehensive reference manual covering, in depth, all of the subjects included in the training programme. These notes are acclaimed by all who read them and prove to be a valuable source of guidance long after your training is complete.
At the end of the programme you should be able to:
- Identify and assess typical hazards in the workplace
- Recommend remedial action to control workplace hazards
- Investigate accidents and recommend preventative measures
- Interpret a range of important health and safety legislation
- Explain human and organisational influences on health and safety
- Describe potential ill-health effects arising from work environments
- Devise control strategies for substances hazardous to health
A full list of objectives is available on request.
To achieve the National General Certificate requires the successful completion of three formal examinations; two traditional written question papers and one practical workplace assessment which will all be taken here at The Mount School. Success in each examination will be recognised by the issue of a single credit. When all three credits have been gained you will receive your NEBOSH National General Certificate and you have five years in which to complete the challenge.
We won’t leave you stranded when it comes to the final test. Throughout the programme our trainers will help you to prepare for the examination by developing your question reading and answering technique. This attention to the finer detail of the examination ensures that most of our candidates pass first time.
