NVQ Level 3 in Occupational Health and Safety Practice


Aims and Objectives

City and Guilds Logo

A National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) is a qualification that recognises the competence of a person in a work situation. Unlike traditional health and safety training that relies on teaching and examinations, NVQs use performance on the job as a basis for assessment.

The Level 3 NVQ in Occupational Health and Safety is suitable for those whose role includes the area of general health and safety practice. All such practitioners are involved in the assessment of risks, the identification of hazards and determining strategies for control. There are a number of skills that they would all need and use, such as:

  • raising awareness about health and safety within the organisation
  • using information to promote good practice
  • maintaining and enhancing health and safety systems
  • promoting good relationships to enhance health and safety practice

The Institution of Occupational Safety & Health (IOSH) accepts this qualification for membership at Technician level (TechIOSH) subject to experience. The International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM) accept this qualification for Associate Member status (AIIRSM). This is a highly practical programme, and one of our team of personal advisors/assessors will assist you to build a portfolio which meets the requirements of City and Guilds for their NVQ Level 3 in Occupational Health and Safety Practice. Our approach is one-to-one, and we structure our programme of assistance to suit your needs as a busy practitioner.

This is a highly practical programme, and one of our team of personal advisors/assessors will assist you to build a portfolio of work based evidence which meets the requirements of City and Guilds for their NVQ Level 3 in Occupational Health and Safety. Our approach is one-to-one, and we structure our programme of assistance to suit your needs as a busy health and safety practitioner (using our unique secure web site, known as an ePortfolio, to build you portfolio of work evidence).

There are five mandatory units:

  • HSS1 - Make sure your own actions reduce risks to health and safety
  • HSS2 - Develop procedures to safely control work operations
  • HSS3 - Monitor procedures to safely control work operations
  • HSS4 - Promote a health and safety culture within the workplace
  • HSS6 - Conduct a health and safety assessment of a workplace

In addition candidates must choose two optional units from the following:

  • HSS5 - Investigate and evaluate incidents and complaints in the workplace
  • HSS7 - Make sure your own actions within the workplace aim to protect the environment
  • HSS8 - Review health and safety procedures in workplaces
  • HSS9 - Supervise the health, safety and welfare of a learner in the workplace

Our ePortfolio system allows candidates to complete and present their portfolio of evidence online using our tailored City and Guilds approved system. Candidates can study when they want, where they want, with no bulky paper-based portfolios to manage or store. The e-portfolio is based online, accessible via an internet browser. The system is intuitive to use with minimal training required and support as required from our Assessors/Advisors. Candidates can track their own progress at all times, having instant access to course materials and resources. Candidates can easily upload evidence into their e-portfolio and communicate with their Assessor/Advisor effectively and easily.

Who should attend?

This qualification is aimed at employees who wish to achieve formal qualification in occupational safety and health at a level equivalent to the NEBOSH General Certificate - it could be suitable for those new into a health and safety role, or mangers who wish to formalise their knowledge and understanding.
