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
