Laying the foundations for healthier and safer construction sites

NEBOSH launches a new qualification to boost health and safety in construction sector

Introducing the updated NEBOSH Construction Certificate – The Health and Safety Management for Construction qualification.

This new two-week qualification for the construction sector will give learners the skills they need to take on health and safety responsibilities.

Laying the foundations for healthier and safer construction sites, qualification holders will also be better able to influence their on-site colleagues to work more safely; gaining the confidence and technical know-how to challenge unsafe behaviours and offer practical solutions.

It is designed to reflect the highly practical nature of construction, learners will cover a broad range of topics from excavation, demolition and fire to culture, change and psychological health. Everything they need to make a construction site healthier and safer!

This practical emphasis is continued in the assessment. Learners will be asked to complete a 48-hour assessment based on a real-life scenario to really reflect the requirements of a construction health and safety professional.

  • Advise on duties and manage construction risks under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015
  • Justify the need for health and safety improvements
  • Produce or contribute to a construction phase plan
