NEBOSH's National General Certificate qualification in Occupational Health and Safety gives a good foundation in health and safety for managers, supervisors and staff with health and safety among their day-to-day responsibilities.

This qualification is widely taken as the first step towards a career in health and safety and is accepted by IOSH – the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health – in meeting the academic requirements for Technical Membership of IOSH (Tech IOSH).

This NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety course is being run in Salisbury over the following dates:

Have I Chosen the Right Course for Me?

This qualification provides the underpinning knowledge required by people with fire safety responsibilities at work. It is particularly relevant for those who contribute to or review fire risk assessments within low to medium-risk workplaces.

For many who already have responsibility for other compliance issues, such as health and safety or environmental management, gaining specialist knowledge of fire safety can further expand their capabilities and help bring success and advancement to their career. The same applies to others in general management positions in the workplace.

• How to effectively manage health and safety
