NEBOSH national construction certificate

Here at Health & Safety North East offers a wide selection of training courses, for both managers and employees, with the aim of making the workplace a safe environment for all on site.

The NEBOSH National Certificate in Construction Safety and Health, builds on knowledge learned on completion of the NEBOSH National General Certificate.

A well regarded qualification in construction health and safety, the course is aimed at supervisors, managers and CDM co-ordinators, within the industry that are required to ensure that activities within their workplace are undertaken safely.

The qualification is also suitable for management in other industries, where temporary workplaces are a common occurrence. In addition, those who require additional construction-specific health and safety knowledge, may also benefit from the course.

No previous health and safety knowledge is required for the course, although it is advisable that candidates do have an understanding of the basic practical aspects of the construction industry.

  • 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 to a recognised professional body.
