The NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Safety and Health is a core qualification for people from all types of organisations who need a broad understanding of health and safety issues. Many people do the NEBOSH National General Certificate as a first step in a career in health and safety as it provides a valuable overview, and is a sound basis for further professional study.

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