NEBOSH National Certificate in the Management of Health and Well-being at Work

Course Overview: 

It is suitable for general managers, supervisors, HR managers, and safety professionals (rather than occupational health practitioners), who have responsibility for, or involvement in, the health and well-being of employees as part of their day-to-day duties.
Holders are able to develop effective health and well-being strategies at work by identifying risks and managing issues such as reducing absence, facilitating return to work, stress, musculoskeletal disorders and workplace health promotion.
The qualification features a practical assessment based on the identification of workplace health and well-being needs. This will include identifying strengths and weaknesses in the way health and well-being is managed and complete a report to management with prioritised recommendations for improvements.
This qualification was developed after extensive research with health and well-being professionals, employers, professional bodies and regulators to ensure that they remain relevant, rigorous, as well as achievable and practical.
You will be assessed on your ability to apply your skills and knowledge to a wide range of issues and how to deliver positive change to a real workplace.

This qualification is for anyone who needs to gain a sound understanding of the principles of health and well-being management at work.
It is particularly suited to managers, supervisors, health and safety and HR personnel, who have responsibility for, or are involved in, the health and well-being of employees as part of their day-to-day duties. This is not a qualification for occupational health practitioners or for those who deal with specific medical aspects of health at work.

The National Certificate in the Management of Health and Well-being covers best practice in management of health in the workplace. After just one week of training, students can produce a health and well-being strategy that works.
