NEBOSH International General Certificate in Occupational Health & Safety

           
 

The NEBOSH International General Certificate (IGC) covers the principles relating to health and safety, identification and control of workplace hazards and the practical application of this knowledge. The IGC syllabus takes a risk management approach based on best practice and international standards, such as the International Labour Organisation (ILO) codes of practice.

The International General Certificate is divided into three units, each of which is assessed separately:
• Management of international health and safety (IGC1)
• Controlling workplace hazards (GC2)
• Health and safety practical application (GC3)

Managers, supervisors and employees throughout the world take the NEBOSH International General Certificate because it gives them the skills and know-how to fulfil their health and safety responsibilities in any country and in any kind of organisation.

The NEBOSH International General Certificate is also suitable for those embarking on a career in health and safety, providing a sound basis for progression on to the NEBOSH International Diploma. No previous health and safety knowledge is required.

Holders of the International General Certificate also meet the academic requirements to Technician Membership (Tech IOSH) of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH).
