NEBOSH IGC Course

Overview
This 4-day revision course is catered not for busy individuals but predominantly for H&S practitioners who have basic knowledge of occupational health & safety and, would like to acquire this internationally recognised certification.

The NEBOSH International General Certificate is modelled on NEBOSH's National General Certificate, which has long been recognised as the basis for a sound, broad introduction to the fundamentals of occupational health and safety. The key difference between the two awards is in the applicability of legal requirements. Rather than be guided by a specifically UK framework, the International General Certificate takes a risk management approach based on best practice and international standards, such as ILO codes of practice, with special reference to the model proposed in the ILO's "Guidelines on Occupational Safety and Health Management Systems" (ILO-OSH 2001). Local laws and cultural factors form part of the study programme where relevant and appropriate.

The principles involved in achieving high standards of health and safety are the same regardless of legal requirements. It is these principles, and the practices that follow them, that form the basis of the NEBOSH International General Certificate.

Programme Objectives
The NEBOSH International General Certificate has been designed to provide an appropriate breadth of underpinning knowledge for non-specialists in occupational health and safety to enable them to discharge more effectively their organisational duties or functions with respect to workplace health and safety. The Certificate has been designed for managers, supervisors, worker representatives and others who require a fundamental knowledge and understanding of health and safety principles and practices.

Competence requires the appropriate application of knowledge and understanding through experience of tackling real issues at work. Rather, the NEBOSH International General Certificate provides a broad base of knowledge on which a fundamental level of competence in occupational health and safety can be developed.

Paper 3 Practical Assessment
The aim of the ‘practical assessment’ is to test a candidate’s ability to complete a health and
safety assessment of a workplace. In particular, the assessment requires candidates to:

  • Carry out unaided a safety inspection of a workplace, identifying the more common hazards, deciding whether they are adequately controlled and, where necessary, suggesting appropriate and cost effective remedial action.
  • Prepare a report (~600 words) that persuasively urges management to take appropriate action, explaining why such action is needed (including reference to possible breaches of international standards) and identifying, with due consideration of reasonable practicability, the remedial measures that should be implemented.
