The NEBOSH National Certificate in Construction Health and Safety 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.
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)
The NEBOSH National Certificate in Construction Health and Safety course syllabus is made up of the following units:
• Foundations in health and safety
• Health and safety management systems - Plan
• Health and safety management systems - Do
• Health and safety management systems - Check
• Health and safety management systems - Act
• Construction law and management
• Construction site - hazards and risk control
• Vehicle and plant movement - hazards and risk control
• Musculoskeletal hazards and risk control
• Work equipment - hazards and risk control

• Fire safety
• Chemical and biological health - hazards and risk control
• Physical and psychological health - hazards and risk control
• Working at height - hazards and risk control
• Excavation work and confined spaces - hazards and risk control
• Demolition and deconstruction - hazards and risk control
• Construction health and safety practical application
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 Keep Safe Solutions and externally moderated by NEBOSH.

NEBOSH's unit based approach will allow you to gain additional units to achieve new qualifications without having to study or be assessed on topics that you have already covered in a previous NEBOSH qualification.
A delegate may chose to specialise in a certain industry of health and safety, such as general health and safety or fire safety, in which case they may chose to undertake the NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety or the NEBOSH National Certificate in Fire Safety and Risk Management.
