Introduction to Health and Safety at Work covers the fundamentals of occupational safety and closely follows the NEBOSH National General Certificate syllabus which was updated in 2019 and came into use in 2020.

Highly illustrated and over 600 pages in length, it covers all of the essential elements of health and safety management, the legal framework, risk assessment and control standards and also includes checklists, report forms and record sheets to supplement learning. It also has an extensive summary of current health and safety legislation.

  • Aligned to the NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety
  • Practice questions and answers to test knowledge and increase understanding

In addition to helping students study for the NGC, it is used for reference and revision on other Health and Safety qualifications at level 3 and above, including the Nebosh Diploma. It is also a source of reference and guidance for health and safety practitioners in the workplace.
