As the saying goes ‘It’s better to give than to receive’. We hear it all the time, especially at this time of year. The accumulation of possessions offer only short-term gains which often fade quickly. On the flip side, generosity and giving offers long lasting happiness, purpose and fulfilment. Christmas, you see, is far more than boxes wrapped in string.
Indeed, Christmas can be a time for giving long-term ‘benefits’ (benefits being the key word here). For those in the health and safety game, giving the gift of a NEBOSH National General Certificate to an employee can have huge benefits to not only them, but the company as well.
Like all gifts however, it’s important to understand its true value in order to fully appreciate it. For that reason, we’ve highlighted the main benefits delegates can expect to receive from undertaking the NEBOSH National General Certificate:
The NEBOSH National General Certificate is the UK’s most popular health and safety qualification, currently held by over 150,000 people.

The course can do wonders for a delegates’ credibility and to their organisation – demonstrating the seriousness with which an organisation views safety to its stakeholders and its customers.
Large organisations choose the NEBOSH National General Certificate as a key part of their supervisors’ or management development programme. By ensuring that managers have a sound understanding of the principles of risk management they can build an effective safety culture within company.
