Re: NCRQ vs NVQ vs NEBOSH

Pete , To answer your question; Has anyone got an opinion of the NCRQ path, is it the equivalent to NEBOSH and would the qualification get me a job in H&S.

Re: PTW Audit Form

Messy,

I do a lot of work with an offshore drilling contractor who audit as a minimum, 10% of hot and cold permits and 20% of entry permits.

Audit can be conducted by anyone on board at the time.

Re: Surf's up!!!

Quite amazing how some people will actually get too close to such power though. I would not bet against there being at least 1 more fatality before the Spring, as idiots get too close to Stormy breakers on piers, seafronts etc. :( Unfortunately there were 2 deaths very near to where I suspect these...
