If there is one book that every person with an interest in, or responsibility for, health and safety should have on their shelves, then this must be it.

nebosh introduction to H&S at work

By simmoch
having bought this book to revise in addition to my online course, i realised that this book offers more than my very expensive course, i would recommend this book along with the nebosh revision cards and the money that you would save on a course you could also buy previous nebosh exams and examiners comments wich are invaluable, put in the work and that should be enough to pass the exam, again think twice about spending a grand on a course, just buy this book !!

Nebosh Book

By Richard Hughes
As a contracts manager for landscaping on construction sites out in the industry I must admit I had thumbed through this book a number of times and thought it might be useful one day, last week I needed information on hot works for one of my jobs. I thought the book didn’t cover this item but to my surprise it not only covers and describes the various risks associated but it gave me the whole picture of my responsibilities, that of my main contractor and client.

Buy this!
