NEBOSH Oil and Gas Certificate

  • Level 3 Qualification

The NEBOSH Oil and Gas Certificate, or NEBOSH International Technical Certificate in Oil and Gas Operational Safety to give it its longer and grander full title, is intended for those with health and safety responsibilities within the oil and gas industries, including managers and supervisors.

Workplaces operating in the oil and gas industries are particularly high risk. These environments contain distinct hazards which either do not exist in other industries, or are particularly prevalent and more likely to cause a major incident.

The course syllabus looks at hazards such as explosion and fire controls, hydrocarbon process safety and logistics and transport operations. It is a qualification which is held in extremely high regard by employers, and results in a safer place of work where the potential for accidents and incidents is significantly reduced.
