Is the NEBOSH General Fast Track course right for you?

This course is for managers, supervisors and staff from all types of organisations, who need a broad understanding of health and safety issues. It is the first step toward a career in health and safety.

The fast track requires a high level of commitment, over a shorter period of time. It is right for you if you are able to commit to 10 days of training over a three week period and can fit in the self-study during that time.

NG1 prepares you for the exam and NG2 is all the information you need to do the assessment

On top of the study days, it's advisable to dive into your revision.

You should do roughly two hours per element, if you're following NEBOSH guidance. If you need more time, go for it.

When you revise is up to you, but we usually recommend that you go over the element you've studied during the day, in the evening, when the information's still fresh.

  • Understand the importance of proactive as well as reactive health & safety monitoring measures
  • Identify hazards in the workplace and carry out risk assessments, record findings & review procedures
  • Advise on strategies for controlling hazards, reducing risks and applying safe systems of work
  • Identify fire hazards and consequential risks, advise on measures to minimise fire risks and develop fire procedures
