Clarification of the Construction content in the NEBOSH National General Certificate

NEBOSH has asked us to make it clear that although the Construction element has been removed from the syllabus, there are still Construction topics in the current NEBOSH National General Certificate syllabus.  The principal Construction topics appear in Chapter 1 and Chapter 6 and are examinable.

From January 2014, additional Construction topics will also be examinable in the recently published revised NGC syllabus. These additional topics are currently in section 14.2 of Chapter 14 and appear on pages 416 – 423 (sub-sections14.2.1-14.2.3).
