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.

Embedding

These follow up coaching sessions help support your colleagues to embed their learning during their skills transfer period.  Applying new skills and changing behaviour takes effort and practice.  After attending a training course many colleagues will find they need support through this transition.  EQV can provide that support with follow up coaching sessions to help embed the learning.

Embedding coaching sessions can be delivered in 90 minute and half day durations.  The facilitator will work with the group to capture feedback about challenges and how to overcome them ensuring success going forward.

Having a formal embedding coaching session will not only increase the success of the skills transfer period but helps create a platform of motivation, inclusivity and commitment within the group.
