Introduction to International Health and Safety at Work has been specially written in simple English for the thousands of students who complete the NEBOSH International General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety each year.
Matched to the existing 2010/2011 syllabus (March 2011 specification), this course book provides students with all they need to tackle the course with confidence. Full colour pages and hundreds of illustrations bring health and safety to life. Each chapter starts with learning outcomes and ends with questions taken from the recent NEBOSH examinations. Specimen answers and a study skills chapter are also included to aid exam preparation.
This book will meet the needs of students on the NEBOSH course and will remain a most useful reference for all managers who work to international standards but need to adapt them to local needs and practices.
