Introduction to Health and Safety at Work has been developed for the NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Safety and Health, accredited by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority, and closely matches the syllabus. The successful first edition has also found ready acceptance for other NVQ level 3 and 4 courses in Health and Safety.
As an introduction to all areas of occupational safety and health the book will also be useful to 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.
New in this edition:
* Chapter on international aspects and standards (including ILO and OHSAS 18001), making the book suitable for overseas courses such as the NEBOSH International Certificate
* Study skills chapter offers more support for students who return to study
* Updated throughout in line with changes in the regulations, including the Fire Safety Order.
