The NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Safety and Health is a nationally-recognised qualification covering the main legal requirements for health and safety in the UK. It also deals with a range of workplace hazards and methods of control.
The NEBOSH National General Certificate consists of three units, each separately assessed.Delegates may choose to undertake all of the units at the same time or at different times. A unit certificate will be issued on successful completion of each unit. However, to achieve the NEBOSH National General Certificate award, delegates need to pass all three units within a five-year period.

The three units are as follows:

Unit NGC1 – Management of health and safety
Unit NGC2 – Controlling workplace hazards
Unit NGC3 – Practical assessment

Unit NGC1 can be used as a pre-entry for the NEBOSH Fire Safety and Risk Management Certificate and the NEBOSH Certificate in Construction Health and Safety.
