This is a really excellent comprehensive book on the subject. It is the set book for a course I teach and very well chosen. I am particularly impressed in that it leads directly to an industry wide recognised qualification. The only improvement I would suggest is that there could be a reference to a web site or a CD included which would allow the reader practice questions with automatic marking. Really well done Messer Hughes and Ferrett.
This book is essential reading for candidates taking the NEBOSH Construction Certificate. The book explains the basic principles of health and safety and breaks legislation down into simple english. Good illustrations are used to assist the explanations and the sample questions and answers are excellent. A must-buy for students. The book is also a useful reference tool for construction site managers, estimators and quantity surveyors
