NEBOSH GC3 - Welfare Hazards????

Post by kowal.ju »

Good afternoon,

So I've just done my NGC1 and GC2 exams and now I'm starting my GC3. Instead of blabbing on I'll get straight to the point....

I have highlighted some welfare hazards such as no hot water, no rest facilities, toilet not working etc. however I'm finding it hard to think of any solid Risks and Consequences... I've put down low morale, poor wellbeing... but I'm not confident and I cant find anything online that would help


Thank you:)

You have rightly identified the hazard, no hot water, consequences of that could be staff sickness due to eating with contaminated hands, no rest facilities is staff fatigue and toilet not working is staff illness and unpleasant smell around the workplace. Remember not to have any more than 4 hazards from the same hazard type in your report.
Hope this helps

Make sure you quote the

The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992.

as most of what you stated above is contravention of this regulation. Expand on the other consequences of not complying as well like loss of company reputation, high staff turnover. Potentially corporate manslaughter charges if there was an accident.
