NEBOSH Award in Health and Safety at Work

  • Level 2

The NEBOSH Health and Safety at Work Award is an introductory qualification, and is aimed at those who are required to understand the principles of health and safety as part of their job. Therefore, it is recommended managers, supervisors, team leaders, facility managers and people working with children take this course.

A NEBOSH Health and Safety at Work Award will benefit organisations who are hoping to implement a health and safety management system. Health and safety at work training will ensure that your workforce, especially supervisory staff, can apply the principles of risk assessment and control common workplace hazards to help to reduce accidents in the workplace and achieving cost savings for the business.

The course is also designed as a foundation course to allow progression to the NEBOSH General Certificate.
