A big thank you....

Hi all, Not been on for a while. For varying reasons one of which (you'll be pleased to hear) that I have been offered a new job. I just wanted to say thank you to all that have commented on my older threads and provided advice. The role I've been offered is a "proper" health and safety role. It is ...

Changes to NEBOSH Cert

It appears that they have changed the NEBOSH Certificate as of last week. From what I can tell it's one exam and one practical, other than that I don't know any other details. I've contacted NEBOSH as I need to resit NGC1, and they have said there will be a transition period but couldn't confirm wha...

Re: IOSH vs IIRSM membership

Thank you all.

I went with IOSH in the end. Signed up yesterday and sent off the certificates etc. so we will see how that pans out. Even completed my tax refund online which was straight forward. ./thumbsup..

IOSH vs IIRSM membership

Here are my circumstances. I am currently working in an entry level role in H&S and actively looking for the first proper health and safety role. I've had a few interviews and been unsuccessful mainly due to "lack of experience". I'd like to join one of the above for a number of reasons but the main...

Re: IOSH Membership

Hi, thank you for the response. In short, neither IOSH or IIRSM offer monthly payments for membership.

IOSH Membership

With my certificate for NCRQ landing on my doormat recently, I feel I now need to apply for a TechIOSH membership (which I believe I qualify for). Not only will it be useful to attend events etc but will look good on my CV. I have emailed IOSH my query but haven't had a response and wonder if anyone...

Re: "The three words that can save your life" - BBC

I am probably being really silly here, but other than replacing co-ordinates with three random words what's so innovative about it?

It's easier to remember three words than a set of co-ordinates I guess. Am I missing something blindingly obvious?

Re: Gaining experience

Thank you both. Some real good stuff in there and some stuff I am already doing. I'm getting the interviews and I feel I am connecting with the people on the panels but just lack that practical experience which I won't get in my current role. At least the feedback is consistent and I know where to d...

Re: NEBOSH or NVQ or NCRQ

I did both NEBOSH and NCRQ in the last six months and have posted a comparison of both about a month or two ago. Since I have been in the market for a new job, I have on more than one occasion had to explain what NCRQ is and I am not convinced I would have got to interview stage without a mention of...

Gaining experience

I am after some advice if possible please? As some of you may have seen on another thread I've been actively searching for what I call a proper health and safety role. Currently, I work within a safety team however my role is largely based around data (incidents, near misses etc.). I don't often get...

Re: HSE TRAINEE INSPECTOR JOBS

Yeah. it looks a good route in, however a minmimum requirement is a degree at 2:1 level, which rules a lot (including me) out unfortunately.
