The NEBOSH National Construction Certificate is aimed at Supervisors, Managers and CDM Coordinators 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, engineering and even broadcasting, where temporary workplaces are a feature of their activities.
Assessment is by an end-of-course examination; comprising two written papers – NGC1 (The management of safety and health) and NCC1 (Managing and controlling hazards in construction activities). There is practical assessment for NCC2 which consists of carrying out a health and safety inspection of a construction site and preparing a management report. Delegates are responsible for submitting their assessments within the required timescales.
