As an alternative to academic qualifications, National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs) assess practical skills and the application of knowledge in the workplace, rather than being classroom-based and testing competence via formal exams. 

This qualification is designed for health and safety practitioners who have the ability and scope to develop, implement, monitor and review policies and procedures in relevant health and safety management matters.
 
Delegates are expected to complete their NVQ within 18 months of the start date, and benefit from unlimited support from our team of dedicated, highly experienced assessors throughout their qualification, via visits, email and telephone.

The course is designed to assess and verify knowledge and competence in the practical application of occupational health and safety. On completion of the course, delegates will be able to develop, implement and promote a health and safety policy, develop individual and organisational competence in health and safety, identify, assess and control health and safety risks, and develop and implement monitoring systems as well as response systems.
 
 The course consists of ten units:
 
  • Develop and implement effective communication systems for health and safety information
  • Promote a positive health and safety culture 
  • Develop and maintain individual and organisational competence in health and safety matters
  • Identify, assess and control health and safety risks
  • Develop and implement proactive monitoring systems for health and safety
  • Develop and implement reactive monitoring systems for health and safety
  • Develop and implement health and safety emergency response systems and procedures
  • Develop and implement health and safety review systems
  • Maintain knowledge of improvements to influence health and safety practice
  • Develop and implement the health and safety policy.
 
The qualification is workplace-based and flexible with no formal examination. Candidates will be assigned an assessor who will follow them throughout their NVQ and assess practical skill and application of knowledge using observation and discussion.
 
Candidates are expected to complete a Level 5 NVQ Diploma within 18 months, and will receive support for a two-year period. On completion of the course, candidates will receive a City & Guilds certificate.
 
Learning with the British Safety Council will enable delegates to benefit from our extensive experience in health, safety and environmental management, acquired over the last 60 years. During this time, we’ve educated people from all over the world and have developed expert tuition methods, using the most modern teaching techniques.
