The National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health
The NEBOSH (National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health) National General Certificate is the most widely held health and safety qualification in the UK. It has been designed to provide an appropriate breadth of underpinning knowledge for non specialists in occupational safety and health to enable them to discharge more effectively their organisational duties or functions with respect to workplace health and safety.
The NEBOSH National General Certificate aims to provide managers, supervisors and staff making day-to-day decisions at work with a broad knowledge of health and safety in order to ensure that the health and safety implications of their decisions are properly taken into account. The vast majority of occupational injuries, incidents and ill-health are avoidable by good health and safety management. By saving money, improving productivity and raising workforce morale, effective health and safety management should be recognised as an essential element of a successful management strategy.
