Overview

Introduction to Health and Safety at Work has been developed for the NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Safety and Health. Each element of the syllabus has a dedicated chapter and both taught units are covered in this book. A chapter on international aspects also makes this book suitable for the NEBOSH International General Certificate in Occupational Safety and Health. Previous editions of this book have been used for other NVQ level 3 and 4 courses in health and safety. Full colour pages and hundreds of illustrations bring health and safety to life. To make studying easier, each chapter starts with learning outcome summaries and ends with questions taken from recent NEBOSH examinations. Specimen answers and a study skills chapter aid exam preparation. As an introduction to all areas of occupational safety and health the book acts as a practical reference for managers and directors with health and safety responsibilities, and safety representatives. It covers the essential elements of health and safety management, the legal framework, risk assessment and control standards and includes handy forms and checklists.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This new edition is bigger, better and brighter than its first incarnation and is highly recommended for anyone embarking on the NEBOSH National General Certificate. But don’t just confine it to the back of the bookcase once you’ve passed the exams. It should form the basis of an expanding health and safety library for those just starting out on the road to becoming a health and safety professional, or those for whom health and safety is not their main role."

Nick Cornwell-Smith, Safety & Health Practitioner (SHP) Magazine
