Looking for a decent reference book

Post by launchit0 »

Hi all,

I am looking for a good reference book to have on the shelf for our trainee HSE reps that regularly pass through. I always keep a copy of “An Introduction to Health & Safety” that I used for my NEBOSH Gen cert a while back however I think it’s time to update the old girl.

Does anyone have any suggestions, I’m looking for a book similar to the above with up to date regulations and legislation using examples.

I have looked at getting the most recent edition but was wondering if anyone else had experience of any other was material on the market.
Most of our trainee HSE Reps are NEBOSH Gen qualified already so not looking for anything basic, just a good all rounder for reference to keep them current (and me also).

Most of our trainees tend to be google engineers so don't often get behind a book, I embrace computers but I still think there is a lot to be learned from researching and understand documents in paper format rather than getting answers from Wiki, so for me a combination works best.

Please if you disagree I am open to any suggestions

Thanks in advance

I used to keep a copy of Tolleys at hand (when working in UK) as it had the relevant info in to reference, for myself and others.

Its a tad pricey but the company paid for it ;)

I ma sure others may have other reference material they would recommend.
