Overview

This NEBOSH-endorsed textbook is matched to the latest syllabus of the National Certificate in Construction Safety and Health.

Within the construction industry the need for specialist health and safety training is high due to the high risks involved. This is reflected in recent legislation such as CDM 2007 and explains the consistent demand for courses and learning materials.

The text is easy to read, highly illustrated in full color, and supported with checklists, report forms and record sheets used currently in the industry. Students are supported with end-of-chapter questions, a study skills chapter and specimen assignments including specimen answers.

As NEBOSH actively grow their qualifications internationally, demand for this book and it’s sister titles continues to increase overseas. High growth markets are the Middle East, Malaysia, India and China.

The construction industry is working hard to improve its health and safety record. It is now essential for employers and employees to be aware of the health and safety issues that concern them and demand for qualifications in this area is increasing.

The coverage of this book has been directly matched to the Certificate course in Construction Safety and Health from NEBOSH (National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health). However, the comprehensive coverage of health and safety topics in a construction context make it relevant for other courses in Construction Design and Management, Construction Safety and Health, and the Built Environment, both in the UK and overseas. It will prove essential reading for the building industry.

The text is highly illustrated in full colour, easy to read and includes self-assessment questions taken directly from NEBOSH examinations as well as a study skills chapter. The text is also supported with checklists, report forms and record sheets, making it a valuable reference tool for construction managers, supervisors, designers, building and civil engineers to consult on the day to day issues of health and safety. Fully covers the syllabus for the NEBOSH National Certificate in Construction Safety and Health
