The NEBOSH International General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety

Introduced in 2004, the NEBOSH International General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety teaches managers, supervisors and employees the importance of health and safety in any workplace in any country. Employers and employees of the construction industry will learn to control workplace hazards such as working at height, manual handling or working with dangerous machinery.

The NEBOSH International General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety course also includes local health and safety laws and may show workers how to adapt their health and safety policies according to their culture if this is applicable. As sufficient safety training is vital to avoiding or minimising the risk of injuries, employers and employees have a responsibility to practise this course on a daily basis within their place of work. Assessment is taken in the form of two written papers and one practical examination and the course is divided into three units. Overall, the course offers employers and employees a set of valuable safety skills as well as peace of mind when in the workplace. Undeniably, taking this course should significantly minimise the risk of injuries and accidents but, unfortunately, there is still the potential for an accident to occur on a construction site.

How could I sustain an injury?

The potential for an accident or injury to occur will be higher should someone fail to follow the training to the letter. Slips, trips and falls may occur if the workplace is not kept free of obstructions or equipment is not monitored for damage. Working at height is risky but will be made more risky if harnesses are not checked before use or if personal protective equipment is not provided. Moving heavy equipment will be made significantly more risky should employers and employees be unaware of safe manual handling practices. If you have an accident or sustain an injury and there is evidence of negligence, Accident Advice Helpline can assist.
