International Health and Safety at Work has been specially written in simple English for the thousands of students who complete the NEBOSH International General Certificate in Health and Safety each year. Fully revised in alignment with the April 2015 syllabus, this third edition provides students with all they need to tackle the course with confidence.
Clear, easily accessible information is presented in full colour, with discussion of essential principles such as ILO and OSH conventions as well as legal frameworks from a range of countries.
The only textbook endorsed for the NEBOSH International General Certificate in Health and Safety, International Health and Safety at Work remains the most effective tool for those working to fit international health and safety standards to local needs and practice.
"The authors are well respected and their material has been used by countless students and trainers – including me – to good effect, and doubtless will continue to be so. There is certainly more than enough here for the beginner to get their teeth into."— www.healthandsafetyatwork.com
