NEBOSH Construction

The NEBOSH National Construction Certificate is aimed at Supervisors, Managers and those with a role under the Construction Design and Management regulations 2015 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.

What does the qualification cover?

The NEBOSH National Construction Certificate covers the main legal requirements relating to health and safety in UK construction work, identification, and control of construction workplace hazards, and the practical application of this knowledge. 

No previous health and safety knowledge is required although it is advisable that candidates do have an understanding of the basic practical aspects of the construction industry.  It should also be noted that the practical assessment requires students to undertake an inspection of a construction workplace and to prepare an appropriate report.

The qualification is divided into three units, each of which is assessed separately: 

  • Management of health and safety (NGC1)
  • Managing and controlling hazards in construction activities (NCC1)
  • Construction health and safety practical application (NCC2)

How is it assessed?

Units NGC1 and NCC1 are taught units each assessed by a two-hour written examination.  Each written examination consists of ten 'short-answer' questions and one 'long-answer' question. All questions are compulsory.  Candidate scripts are marked by external examiners appointed by NEBOSH.

Unit NCC2 is assessed by a two-hour practical examination carried out in the candidate's own workplace to test the application of taught health and safety principles in a construction workplace. The assessment must normally be taken within 14 days of a written examination.  The practical examination is internally assessed by the course provider and must be marked by an experienced and qualified safety professional.
