( Occupational Health / Safety And Environment Training!

Occupational Health Safety and Environment Training is all about equipping people with skills required for protecting themselves from the risks associated with work activities. Employers and employees, as well as government regulators are all involved and have vital roles. Thronelink Consult Limited represents over25 years of experience in training and consultancy services to oil and gas companies and other firms on occupational health and safety programs.

What is Occupational Health and Safety really is.

It is a fundamental principal of Health and Safety law stipulating that those who create risks are responsible for managing those risks in a proportionate and sensible way. The major legal responsibility resides with employers, but employees too are required to be on their guard for health, safety and welfare of themselves and others.

It is vitally important in Occupational Health and Safety that risks which could cause death or injury should be properly controlled, and also so for businesses. A company’s greatest asset is its people and failure to control risks can lead to high costs through sick leave, insurance costs and lost productivity.

Who needs Occupational Health and Safety in the workplace?

According to The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, all employers need to provide information, instruction, training and supervision to ensure, as far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety at work of their employees.
This will include induction training for all employees, specific training in subjects such as DSE, COSHH, Fire safety and Manual handling; and higher level management training for the health and safety team.

The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 expand on this by setting out a number of specific situations where training must be provided. These include when employees first start work and when employees are exposed to new or increased risks. Under these regulations, workers (including contractors and self-employed associates) must be given adequate information and instruction by the host or main employer about the risks.

Employers need to know who is legally responsible for health and safety at work. They are required to appoint a ‘competent person’ to help them meet their health and safety duties. This person must have the necessary skills, experience and knowledge to manage health and safety. If the employer is not confident of their ability to manage the health and safety risks, external help or advice may be required.

How much are the training courses for Occupational Health and Safety Training? And how are they assessed?

If you’re looking to discover how much a Health and Safety course will cost, the table below explains the prices for each qualification, including

Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety’ and the ‘NEBOSH National Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety’?

The two qualifications are positioned at different levels on the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF). The NEBOSH General Certificate is a level three qualification in the QCF (equivalent to an A Level) and the NEBOSH Diploma is a level six (equivalent to a degree). The Diploma provides a more in-depth insight into occupational health and safety than the Certificate. It goes into more detail about the subjects of culture change and both civil and criminal law.

To complete the NEBOSH General Certificate you do not need any previous health and safety knowledge. However, if you wish to study the NEBOSH Diploma, previous experience in health and safety is strongly advised and applications from those without sufficient experience can be refused.

What are the differences between the ‘NEBOSH National Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety’ and the ‘Level 6 Diploma in Occupational Safety and Health’?

These two courses are very similar in terms of content. However, the main difference is that the NEBOSH Diploma is taught over six weeks, whereas the Level 6 Diploma only requires five weeks in the classroom. Further to this, the NEBOSH diploma is seen as a more academic qualification, with three exams and a work-based assignment.

The Level 6 diploma, on the other hand, only has two exams, with two work-based assignments. On successful completion of either, learners will meet the academic requirements for Grad IOSH.
