NEBOSH International Certificate

The NEBOSH International General Certificate (IGC) provides organisations with a global presence seeking to adopt an internationally recognised health and safety training programme. It is a unique international health and safety standard award. It has the same format and content as the NEBOSH General Certificate but focuses on internationally recognised safety standards and priorities (ILO/18001) and best practice in controlling hazards.

The training is aimed at non UK nationals, employees of large organisations operating outside the UK, or multinational companies already working to international standards but needing to adapt these to accord with local needs and practice. It has been designed for personnel e.g. managers, supervisors, non-safety specialists, worker representatives who have both general and specific safety and health responsibilities within their organisation.
