Health and Safety appointed representatives are faced with a constant battle against ever changing Health and Safety legislation and the impact on their respective organisations. In addition, EC regulations stipulate that Health and Safety representatives must be "competent" to perform the role.
The NEBOSH certificate course, upon completion, is recognised as providing this competence, along with providing delegates with the skills to interpret and implement current Health and Safety requirements.
Nebosh aims to improve the delegates ability to identify hazards and recommend appropriate action by:
- Developing the ability to investigate accidents and make cost effective recommendations.
- Developing a practical understanding of safety legislation.
- Developing an appreciation of human and organisational problems and possible solutions.
