Re: NVQ 5 in Occupational Health & Safety v NEBOSH Dipolma

your comment comes across as quite disparaging to all those who have achieved the Diploma from many, many months of hard study. Please accept my apologies :oops: I certainly didn't mean to suggest anything like that. I know how much stress sitting that exam causes. What I meant by "naming" is that ...

Re: Shared Premises

If you are an employer you must have a H&S policy. Whether you share premises or not doesn't matter. Saying that: if you do share a building with other employers then you will need to co-operate with them to make sure you get things right. Things like fire drills might be easier to do together. If y...

Re: NVQ 5 in Occupational Health & Safety v NEBOSH Dipolma

NEBOSH is the one that employers have heard of. Because of this, it's the one they often specify when writing job specs. NVQ is a much more in-depth qual. It is a test of both practical skills and knowledge, whereas the NEBOSH is just knowledge. Also, the NVQ is part of the national qualification st...

Re: Panic!

DO NOT PANIC! (as heard in a Hawkwind song :) )

Shane and Keith have pretty-much said it all really. Just let the insurance bods do their thing.

Re: Do some people have a death wish?

Terry - I understand your frustration :roll: Next time someone does something stupid, take their photo. Make sure they know you're taking it too (shout "say cheese!" or something like that). The usual response from this is for them to ask you what the heck you're doing. "Just taking your picture" is...

Re: NVQ delivery via OCR Awarding Body

This is true - we had confirmation from OCR today. If you are a learner: make sure you have your enrolment number. If your training provider hasn't given you an enrolment number yet then pester them for it now. We normally register learners after their first session with the assessor (that's me :wav...

Re: Health & Safety Inspector

Lots of applicants, with the final decision being made to take on someone who ...
