City and Guilds - Level 3 NVQ Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety (3654-03)

There are no formal entry requirements for the NVQ Level 3 in Occupational Health and Safety Practice; however candidates must be in a role that allows them to collect evidence which meets the requirements of City & Guilds.

This level is ideal if your job involves health and safety and you have experience of developing and applying policy and procedures within your organisation.

City and Guilds Level 3 NVQ Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety and Level 5 NVQ Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety Practice provide essential occupational health and safety knowledge and skills, from conducting risk assessments to introducing procedures and promoting a culture of health and safety in the workplace for those who are responsible for or looking to start a career in health and safety in an organisation in any industry.

Level 3 NVQ Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety will develop the competency for those who wish to develop skills and knowledge in the application of occupational health and safety good practice within the workplace.

How is it assessed?

The City and Guilds Level 3 NVQ Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety (3654-03) qualification requires that all assessment of the candidates performance must take place within the workplace and that observation should be of naturally occurring practice within the candidates work role.

This will include the demonstration of the application of knowledge.

Simulation is not allowed.

City & Guilds in partnership with ProSkills and other awarding organisations have identified the following main assessment methods which are suitable for this qualification:

  • direct observation of practice by a qualified assessor or by the expert witness for occupational specific units
  • examining the evidence by an assessor
  • questioning the candidate or witness by an assessor In some situations, the assessor can conduct a professional discussion with the candidate to provide evidence of the candidates performance and knowledge.

Evidence can:

  • reflect how the candidate carried out the process
  • be the product of a candidates work
  • be a product relating to the candidates competence.

For example, the process that the candidate carries out could be recorded in an observation or witness testimony. It is the assessors responsibility to make sure that the evidence a candidate submits for assessment meets the requirements of the qualification.

The product of a candidates work could be:

  • risk assessments carried out by the candidate
  • health and safety training devised and/or delivered by the candidate
  • results of health and safety inspections conducted by the candidate
  • results and findings of accident investigations carried out by the candidate.

These are examples of what a candidate may present -

however, it is not a definitive list. The examples are not exhaustive.
