The NEBOSH Certificate in the Management of Health and Well-being at Work provides a broad understanding of health and well-being issues that affect workplaces and enables the risks that arise to be managed effectively.  As well as covering a range of workplace health and well-being hazards and methods of control, it includes the UK legislation relating to the management of these important risks.

  • Managers, supervisors and worker representatives
  • Human resources personnel
  • Those responsible for health and well being strategies and reviews in the workplace
  • Health personnel that wish to obtain a better understanding of occupational health and well-being

The NEBOSH National Health and Well-being Certificate provides a valuable overview of the management of health and well-being risks and is a sound basis for further professional study, such as the NEBOSH National General Certificate and National Diploma.

Classroom tutorials are organised prior to each examination period and made available to all students as an option.  They cover the two examined units of the qualification, providing an opportunity to revise and consolidate understanding.  The tutorials greatly assist those that need coaching in examination technique and will increase student confidence to complete the written and practical examinations, leading to a better pass mark.


The qualification is divided into two assessed units, each of which is assessed separately.  Assessment is by one written examination (Unit NHC1) and a work-based practical examination (Unit NHC2).   All units must be completed within 5 years to achieve the full NEBOSH National Health and Well-being Certificate.

The NEBOSH Health and Well-being Certificate classroom course involves attendance at a one week face-to-face study period that covers Units NHC1 and NHC2. 

The study period leads up to the separate examination day, allowing time for private study and to attend the optional revision and examination tutorial period.
