CMIOSH

Is CMIOSH overused and over relied on to validate knowledge?

Does it give a false sense of security around practical application of the legislation?

Just wondered what other Safety professionals views were in the subject.

'Let Them Fall' policy

Right, here is the conundrum: Resident in a health care setting falls and the member of staff lets them, as they believe that this is the correct thing to do. I have an opinion on this but wanted to see what your organisation feels (if applicable) or your professional opinion is on this subject .......

CDM training

I have the following quals:
NCRQ Diploma
NVQ L5
NEBOSH General
NEBOSH fire

BUT I don't have anything formal for CDM and do NOT wish to undertake another full on course, any suggestions that would supplement what I already have or will I be best doing a full on qual?

Computer says no!

Have you ever gone through the full process of risk assessment, starting with critical analysis outlining your justification and then got to the end of the process and said; nope not happening!?

If so, how did you document that?

Sorry, I like to challenge the knowledge with random questions!

Re: NEBOSH refresher training

In short this is for Facilities Managers who have opted for NEBOSH in a previous life and wish to keep their knowledge / CPD up to date but do not necessarily use H&S on a daily basis 'as such' - it looks like I will be going down the internal training / refresher to address this properly, so that c...

No. of employees

We all know the rule for 5 or more employees BUT ........ and here comes the possibly daft question!

Does this apply when you have 2 full time staff and then take on say 4 seasonal staff through the winter only?

NEBOSH refresher training

Appreciating that the NEBOSH is for life, what refresher training do you offer for this, if you do For IOSH Managing Safely we offer a refresher every 3 years but I am not sure if anyone does anything for NEBOSH that would be suitable (I have considered IOSH MS but am concerned that this may be a bi...

Re: IOSH vs IIRSM membership

I have both to be honest and neither have really done anything for me - I am MIIRSM and GradIOSH; the only place it seems to make any difference is when I am around other H&S professionals. Employers are generally confused about the whole thing and as a rule believe that anything with IOSH (Generall...

Hi All Just to let you know that the 'Care in Safety Awards' nominations are open and they are NOT restricted to NASHiCS (National Association for Safety and Health in Care Services) members; so why not nominate someone who has made a difference in the care sector around safety in recognition of the...
