NEBOSH Oil and Gas Certificate

NEBOSH International Technical Certificate in Oil and Gas Operational Safety

is designed specifically for those with safety responsibilities in the oil and gas industry. It focuses on international standards and management systems, highlighting the importance of process safety management in the oil and gas industry, enabling students to effectively discharge workplace safety responsibilities both onshore and offshore.

The NEBOSH Oil and Gas Certificate is suitable for those who have the responsibility for ensuring safety as part of their day-to-day duties, including:

  • Managers, supervisors and employee representatives within the oil and gas industry.
  • Newly-appointed health and safety advisers.

NEBOSH Oil & Gas Certificate

consists of one unit:
  • Unit IOG1: Management of International Oil & Gas Operational Safety

    • Health, Safety and Environmental Management in Context
    • Hydrocarbon Process Safety
    • Fire Protection and Emergency Response
    • Logistics and Transport Operations

    Assessed by a 2 hour written exam

The NEBOSH Oil and Gas Certificate is a technical qualification and requires certain knowledge before starting the course.

Health and Safety Knowledge

This course is a specialist sector-specific supplement to the NEBOSH International General Certificate which means it assumes those taking the course will have a good understanding of general health and safety. It is therefore highly recommended that students hold the NEBOSH International General Certificate or equivalent before studying the NEBOSH Oil and Gas Certificate. If you do not have this knowledge, RRC provide reference materials to cover this but you should allow for a further 50 hours of study.

Experience of the Oil and Gas Industry

Over recent exams, the NEBOSH examiners have assumed students will have a wider understanding of the oil and gas industry, gained from working in the industry itself. This can provide difficulties for students without this experience as examination questions often require the application of the knowledge delivered in the course to industry-specific scenarios.

Whilst we cannot replace the practical knowledge gained through experience in the industry, we do provide reference materials to assist those without such direct experience. This outlines how oil and gas are extracted and processed, using easily understood diagrams to explain complicated topics such as drilling, refining and storage. You should allow a further 25 Hours study if you need to study this.


The NEBOSH Oil and Gas Certificate is assessed by one two-hour written exam.
