Fire Safety and Risk Management Certificate


The NEBOSH Fire Safety and Risk Management Certificate aims to build on the knowledge gained in the NEBOSH National General Certificate.

The NEBOSH Fire Safety and Risk Management Certificate aims to build on the knowledge gained in the NEBOSH National General Certificate. It has been designed for managers, supervisors, employee representatives and others and aims to equip holders to contribute to the conduct and review of fire risk assessments and fire preventive and protective measures within most workplaces. It is therefore also suitable for people moving careers into fire safety adviser roles. It provides an appropriate breadth of underpinning knowledge for non-specialists in fire safety to enable them to discharge more effectively their organisational duties or functions with respect to workplace fire safety.

Holders of this qualification are entitled to:
– Associate Membership (AIOSH) of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH). The qualification also meets the academic requirements for Technician Membership (Tech IOSH) of IOSH.
– Technician Membership (TIFPO) of the Institute of Fire Prevention Officers (IFPO) and the qualification meets the academic requirements for Associate Membership (AMIFPO). Persons with the relevant skills and experience may also apply to join the IFPO Fire Risk Assessors Register.

This qualification also matches the competency criteria for fire risk assessors published by The Fire Risk Assessment Competency Council. These criteria are being adopted by professional bodies and third party certification bodies who register or certificate fire risk assessors and by commercial companies providing fire risk assessment services.

The NEBOSH Certificate in Fire Safety and Risk Management course covers the management of health and safety and in particular fire safety including legal requirements. It also includes principles of fire and explosion, causes and prevention of fires, fire protection in buildings and ensuring the safety of people in the event of fire
