NEBOSH Award Health and Safety at Work

This addition to the NEBOSH family of internationally recognised qualifications is designed to provide an excellent practical based introduction to health and safety considerations. The NEBOSH Award in Health and Safety at Work focuses very much on the issues which affect every business and is designed for employees of every level within the organisation.

The course can be run on a day release or block release basis to suit the needs of both student and employer with each course lasting three and a half days in total. The NEBOSH Health and Safety at Work qualification is divided into two parts, HSW1, which is the taught course covering ten elements of the course and ending with a multiple choice question paper. The second part, HSW2, requires delegates to apply the theory learnt in a real workplace situation by completing a workplace-based risk assessment.

At the moment, this course can be run in-house and adapted to meet local requirements but also lead to a nationally recognised award for your employees. Contact Us for further Information.
