The book is the definitive handbook to the National General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety from NEBOSH with each element of the syllabus explained in detail. To make studying easier, each chapter starts with learning outcomes and ends with questions taken from recent NEBOSH examinations. Specimen answers and a study skills chapter aid exam preparation.

This book is a handy reference for managers and directors dealing with the day-to-day issues of health and safety and is also of great value to those studying for level 3 N/SVQ and the IOSH Managing Safely Award. It covers all the essential elements of health and safety management, the legal framework, risk assessment and control standards and includes checklists, report forms and record sheets. In addition, useful topics outside the syllabus have been included and an additional chapter to cover other aspects of health and safety and related topics that many readers will find helpful on completion of the course - construction activities, environmental considerations and international issues

Review:

"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
