Re: Changes to NEBOSH Cert

My understanding is that the second part is a risk assessment project(very close to what NCRQ are asking for). Current students will be given sufficient time to complete their studies and resits although not likely to be 5 years, but again my understanding is that it will be in years not months.

Please do not go for general ventilation as that will bring action from HSE. Please have a look at the enforcement notices issued by HSE on their website and it will show a great number of firms have faced action for not having the correct equipment and health surveillance

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

Re: Can an employer charge for PPE?

I have asked this question before and received a response from HSE which states that by offering the money the employer is following the letter of the law but perhaps not the spirit of the law. I have been to lots of businesses that offer the money but then don’t check what the employee has bought. ...

I know what they do and to charge an admin fee is nonsense, if you are anywhere near us then you can sit for just the exam fee. Paul Thank Paul. I am going to loo...

Re: Expected but disappointed

I was referred too and I went down the "EAR" route (remark) probably for the same reasons as you are thinking regarding feedback.........Don't waste your money for that reason, as there is no feedback worth using in a resit.

Re: Manual Handling

Are the NFU going to pay out on claims due to manual handling injuries. One insurance agent we had said if we dont do manual handling training and someone is injured moving something, then we are liable.
Dont know why they would give this advice
