We’ve developed a practical assessment for this practical role.

You will be asked to carry out a series of tasks using evidence from the scenario and the underpinning knowledge gained through your studies and revision.

You will have 48 hours to download, complete and submit your assessment. Your assessment will be marked by an external examiner appointed by NEBOSH. These examiners are chosen for their experience and expertise to ensure that learners are assessed by the very best from our industry.
