Synopsis

This NEBOSH-endorsed textbook will introduce you to the fundamentals of health and safety in the workplace, whether studying for a course or in need of more information on the subject as part of your job.

Introduction to Health and Safety at Work 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, and all relevant legislation summarized for quick reference. To make studying easier, each chapter starts with learning outcomes and ends with questions taken from recent NEBOSH examinations, and a chapter of sample answers can be found at the end of the book.

This book is also of great value to those studying for other health and safety courses, or as a handy reference for managers and directors dealing with day-to-day health and safety issues. 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, as well as a new chapter to cover other aspects of health and safety and related areas that many readers will find helpful on completion of their course, including environmental considerations and international issues.
