This qualification is designed for people working in construction, civil engineering, utilities, facilities, broadcasting, property management and more. It is particularly suitable for managers, supervisors, principal designers and principal contractors who require the right level of skills to fulfil their health and safety responsibilities.

It can be a crucial first step towards establishing a lifelong professional career in the field of occupational health and safety within your chosen industry.

The qualification is divided into two units, each of which is assessed separately and covers the main legal requirements relating to HandS in UK Construction:

  • NCC1: Managing and controlling hazards in construction activities

The National Construction Certificate covers the main legal requirements relating to health and safety in UK construction work, including an understanding of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015. It includes identification and control of construction workplace hazards, and the practical application of this knowledge.

Crucially, the practical element of the course also ensures that participants can carry out, unaided, a safety inspection of a construction workplace and complete a report to management regarding the inspection with recommendations.
