Course Description

NEBOSH Award in Health and Safety at Work

NEBOSH Award in Health and Safety at Work - flexible distance learning course and qualification

The NEBOSH Award in Health and Safety at Work provides an ideal opportunity for individuals to develop an awareness of the health & safety principles relating to their professional role, as well as the practical skills needed to reduce the number of accidents at work and progress in their careers.

This distance learning course is designed to be highly flexible, giving learners the opportunity to enrol at any time and progress though the course at a pace that suits their needs & requirements. With access to Health & Safety Training College's expert tutors by phone, email and Skype, students can ask questions, receive feedback and further build on their knowledge of health and safety principles and practices. When ready, they can then book their NEBOSH examination at venues throughout the UK.

The course syllabus consists of two units, the first of which covers the foundations of workplace safety. The second consists of a practical assessment that will test candidates' proficiency in the topics covered. Upon successful completion of the course, delegates will thus have both the knowledge and the practical skills needed to better promote health & safety and improve risk control in their organisation. In addition, they will have the foundations necessary to move on to more advanced NEBOSH qualifications, including the National General Certificate in Occupational Health & Safety.
