This Level 3 NVQ is suitable for candidates with background experience in health and safety and who are involved in health and safety implementation in their own workplace and in others
The new National Occupational Standards for Health and Safety came into force on the 1st January 2008 and are designed to support the development of good practice and awareness in the work place. They have been reviewed in consultation with employers, sector specialists and stakeholders, professional bodies, regulators and awarding bodies. After initial interview to determine suitability for the programme, candidates will be allocated a fully qualified assessor with long term experience in the Health and Safety sector. Your assessor will arrange one to one meetings with you to observe and assess the evidence you have produced toward your qualification. You will produce a set of portfolios containing this evidence along with supporting statements whilst full and continuous guidance will be given every step of the way.
Delegates who are successful in completing the full programme will be awarded a certificate in Occupational Health & Safety at level 3. If you wish you can obtain a certificate for unit accreditation to cover any units you do complete which do not make up the full programme.
