NEBOSH (National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health) is a worldwide organisation, with 600 providers across 110 countries. NEBOSH qualifications are widely accepted and recognised by the relevant professional membership bodies. These include the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) and the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM). Obtaining a NEBOSH (National Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety) is a very good move if you want to progress in any job as it gives a wide range of knowledge and instils good practice in health and safety skills. Health and safety sometimes has a bad press and there is a lot of inaccuracy in the reporting of various HSE (Health and Safety Executive) directives, normally because they have been misunderstood. However, it is essential that all staff have a good grounding in H&S because the figures for illness and injury at work in any given year are disappointingly high. If everyone takes good care to be safe at work, these numbers will fall and it is only when all employers and employees follow the guidelines precisely that the workplace will become a truly safe place to be, for everyone.
Everyone working together makes everyone safer
The more people in any workplace who are properly trained in health and safety means the safer the place will be. Even so, accidents will still happen. Slips and trips and falls are the most common incidents that, although over in seconds, can have serious implications for a person’s ability to work. If you are hurt at work and it is someone else’s fault, you may have a case for a claim for compensation, especially where there is clear evidence of negligence by someone else, whether it is direct behaviour of a colleague or dereliction of care by an employer.
