Re: NEBOSH GC3 - Welfare Hazards????

You have rightly identified the hazard, no hot water, consequences of that could be staff sickness due to eating with contaminated hands, no rest facilities is staff fatigue and toilet not working is staff illness and unpleasant smell around the workplace.

Re: Changes to NEBOSH Cert

On gun extraction is the preferred method but if not a full air fed mask is required for all welding now. Read the alert the HSE published as a starting point
