NEBOSH construction cert

Been on the plumbing tools for 21 years, had enough of working on my knees for a living, time to get out before my back/hands/knees start to give me some real trouble...

Got a Nebosh general cert a few years ago and now I want to expand on my qualifications.

Can anyone recommend a good trainer Derby/Notts way? has to be block type training, I don't like home study as I prefer to have a trainer to ask stupid questions at!

So I get the construction cert, what other qualifications should I get for a career in construction safety? PASMA, IPAF? go on some IOSH courses?

Want to stick to the construction side of safety, try and get a advisor role at some point.

If construction H&S is what you would prefer then the Construction Cert is a good start.

It's not that different to the ordinary cert TBH but construction sites sometimes insist on it.

Maybe get some Fire Safety, Manual handling, etc., specific certs.

A NRSWA streetworks supervisor ticlet is a useful add-on too

Get some hands-on H&S experience as an advisor than go for NEBOSH Diploma and get into IOSH.

I've been in H&S for 25 years and still enjoy the challenge.

Don't know any trainers but browse here and get some ideas.

IOSH forums home

PM me if I can be of any more help
