Every organisation has to improve the health and safety situation in the workplace. It is an essential requirement for maintaining occupational safety for the employees. NEBOSH General Certificate is designed to give delegates a broad awareness of the primary health and safety issues which affect every organisation.

It is an excellent introduction to workplace safety covering a range of general safety management issues such as risk assessment, audit and inspections as well as a number of specific health and safety hazards.
