The Fourth Edition of this essential health and safety guide has been revised to meet the February 2010 specification for the NEBOSH National Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety. The series of Study Books for NEBOSH National Diploma consists of three books, Managing Health and Safety, Hazardous Agents in the Workplace, and Workplace and Work Equipment. They are designed to provide a health and safety knowledge base for those studying to NEBOSH National Diploma. This publication, together with the other two study books, is an excellent reference source for those active at NVQ Level 5, or undertaking University Diploma programmes and equivalent qualifications. They are also a valuable reference source for qualified health and safety practitioners and those with line management responsibilities for health and safety practitioners and those with line management responsibilities for health and safety. The books, where appropriate, are supported by a variety of photographs and sketches; together with an abridged reference to legislation which students have found particularly useful.
The NEBOSH National Diploma is accredited by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) at Level 10 in the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF). For users in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, this is broadly comparable to a Vocationally-Related Qualification (VRQ) at Level 6 in the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF). Both are comparable to Honours degree level. The NEBOSH National Diploma syllabus is mapped against the relevant National Occupational Standards (NOS) for Health and Safety (Practitioner units) and reflects the management model in HSG65 'Successful Health and Safety Management' - the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) guide on how organisations should manage health and safety.

General Study Book Reviews Customer Review of the International General Certificate Study Book (Via Amazon.co.uk) "This book really helped me with my studies. It simplified what is to be very long and complex context of the course. I have strongly suggested to my colleagues to purchase this book. First book, NEBOSH IGC - next stop is NEBOSH Diploma books". Customer Review of the Construction Certificate Study Book (Via Amazon.co.uk) "My dad is starting the NEBOSH course; he has found this book very useful and easily explained. He is not familiar with exams or reading as he is a builder by trade, however, he said that this book has everything in it and is easy to follow". Customer Review of the Fire Certificate Study Book (Via Amazon.co.uk) "As a study guide this is an excellent addition to the learning tools that already exist. It is comprehensive and contains lots of information relevant to both the course content and the examination. It provides very good information well above the current level of NVQ Level 3. It should not be used to replace any current course information but be used in addition to the course information and in this way will provide a very good grounding in health and safety fire certificate knowledge and understanding. It provides assessments at the back of the book and samples questions and answers. In all, an excellent book for use as a study guide". Customer Review of the National General Certificate Study Book (Via Amazon.co.uk) "This book arrived very swiftly and has greatly helped my husband with his course - just waiting for the exam results". Customer Review (Via ACT Website) "We have been placing orders with ACT for a number of years. The service has been exceptional and the staff are very helpful. I often delay our order until the last minute and they always react. We have confidence in ACT to provide the latest material at a competitive price and we really appreciate everything they do". Customer Review (Via ACT Website) "Completed and passed the course with the help of your study books. Without your study book I would not have passed".
