National Certificate in Construction Safety and Health


 The course is aimed at Supervisors, Managers and Principle Designers within the construction industry who are required to ensure that activities under their control are undertaken safely.

The NEBOSH National Certificate in Construction Safety and Health aims to build on the knowledge gained in the NEBOSH National General Certificate. It is established as a leading award in construction health and safety. The course is aimed at Supervisors, Managers and Principle Designers within the construction industry who are required to ensure that activities under their control are undertaken safely. It is likely to prove useful for those concerned with the management of buildings who may need to ensure that contractors are working safely.

The qualification is also appropriate for supervisors and managers working in other industries such as utilities, and even broadcasting, where temporary workplaces are a feature of their activities. In addition, those working in health and safety in other occupational settings, but who require additional construction-specific knowledge may also benefit from the course.

Holders of the NEBOSH National Certificate in Construction Safety and Health are entitled to Associate Membership (AIOSH) of the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH). The qualification also meets the academic requirements for Technician membership (TechIOSH) of the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) and Associate membership (AIIRSM) of the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM).

Those who hold the NEBOSH Construction Certificate are eligible to apply for the CSCS Academically Qualified Person (AQP) yellow/white card whilst they gain vocational qualifications or membership of a recognised professional body. This card is valid for five years and is currently non-renewable. All applicants must still pass the CITB Managers and Professionals Health, Safety and Environment Test.
