    Carbon Monoxide – The Silent Killer

    Carbon monoxide is a colourless, odourless and tasteless gas that is a product of the partial combustion of carbon based fuels such as natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), oil and wood. As many of you know carbon monoxide is lethal if inhaled. It interferes with the transport of oxygen by the blood. Oxygen is transported in the blood by haemoglobin inside red blood cells. Haemoglobin is a protein. Your red blood cells are jam-packed full of haemoglobin and not much else. When red blood cells pass through blood vessel in the lungs they collect oxygen molecules. Oxygen molecules diffuse from the air in the lungs, through the lung wall…

    Fly Tipping – An Environmental Practitioners Perspective

    The Problem Of Fly Tipping I do enjoy a bit of road cycling, yes I’ve reached the age of becoming a MAMIL! (a middle aged man in Lycra), in case you have never heard of that one before. I’m quite lucky that the area where I mostly cycle, the North Pennines, is a beautiful place with stunning views and many nice, quiet and largely traffic-free roads. However, one issue that really makes my blood boil when I’m out for a ride is the amount of waste that is illegally disposed on the side of the road. I’ve seen many different types of waste over the years such as TVs, construction…

    The NEBOSH Diploma is about the practical application of ‘background’ theory and knowledge to occupational health and safety (OHS) problems. Geek Now I love a bit of science.

Many parts of the NEBOSH Diploma are very much concerned with the practical application of science and engineering to real-world OHS problems. COSHH is about the practical application of biology and chemistry to OHS. So is CAR. LOLER is about the practical application of physics and engineering to OHS. So is PUWER. So is DSEAR. It is also about the practical application of legal principles. And psychology (safety culture and…
