Business Benefit

As stated within the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations 1999, any manager who is appointed to control health and safety issues must be ‘suitably and sufficiently trained’. The NEBOSH National General Certificate is an examined basic level qualification designed to provide this necessary knowledge and understanding of health & safety.
In addition to classroom tuition time, NEBOSH advises a further 40 hours of private study to ensure a successful result.

Testing is completed in two stages; NG1 is via access to an Open Book Examination Portal with questions based on a Safety Scenario the delegate will demonstrate their knowledge of how to apply the relevant regulations and safety measures required to mitigate the scenario. NG2 is to conduct an unaided workplace safety inspection which outlines 10 workplace hazards from a minimum of 5 hazard categories, with the delegate outlining control measures to reduce the risk so far as reasonably practicable.

To achieve this qualification delegates must pass both elements NG1 & NG2.

Who Should Attend

Directors, Managers, Supervisors, Team Leaders or Safety representatives who play a significant role within the management of organisational health & safety.

Measuring The Success


The purpose of your training is learning new skills and/or changing behaviour. We can help you measure this!

To evaluate how successfully the attendees are doing this, delegates can attend a Workplace Implementation session during the skills transfer period. The cost of the session is £595+VAT delivered virtually and lasts for 2.5 hours.

During the Workplace Implementation session the individuals will either on a 1-2-1 basis or as a group discuss the challenges and successes they have experienced during their skills transfer period.
This will include what they are doing differently as a direct result of the training and how this has positively impacted the organisation.
This is an excellent way to encourage the learning, support the skills transfer into the workplace and act as a measure to evaluate the training.

We compile this information into a report so that you have evidence of your return on investment.
