    Hints and Tips to Gain a Good Mark for NEBOSH Environmental Diploma Project

For this assessment NEBOSH require you to review and critic an organisations environmental management system (EMS). The assignment is required to be approximately 8000 words and must be submitted to NEBOSH electronically. The pass mark is 50%.

Therefore, one of the first things you MUST do is to download and thoroughly read the NDEM2 assignment…

    Advice to CSP Qualified Students Taking Advantage of NEBOSH and BCSP Collab

    Earlier this year (2016) NEBOSH and BCSP (Board of Certified Safety Professionals) signed a memorandum of understanding. Recognising each other’s qualifications and allowing exemptions for those NEBOSH Diploma holders wanting to obtain the CSP (Certified Safety Practitioner) qualification. CSP holders waning to attain the NEBOSH Diploma Ordinarily you’d have to take a full course of study from an approved course provider (like RRC) to be able to sit the NEBOSH exams.  But the agreement between NEBOSH and BCSP means that you don’t have to. In practice, whilst there’s some overlap in course coverage between CSP and the NEBOSH’s Health and Safety Diplomas, there’s a lot that’s different.  Added to that…

    Pig Weighing

    Pig Weighing So the farmer wants to sell his pig at market for the best price. He wants the pig to be as heavy as possible. So he weighs the pig to see how heavy it is. Next day he weighs the pig again. He writes each weight down in a notebook. He creates a database on his iPad (very 21st century farmer this one). He plots a graph of weight against time and toys with line graphs and bar charts to find the jazziest way to present the data. He weighs the pig each and every day to track its progress. Only thing is, if you want a pig…

    Hawkwind – Thirty Years and Counting

    Hawkwind – Thirty Years and Counting I went to see Hawkwind when I was a teenager. The “Choose Your Masques” tour. Some of you will remember Hawkwind. They were notoriously loud in concert. Lemmy of Motorhead fame used to be their bass player; but that was way before I went to see them. I was half way up the stalls in the Southampton Gaumont. It was so loud that my guts vibrated in harmony with the band. That’s not a pleasant feeling. When we came out after the concert my head felt as if it had been stuffed with cotton wool. I had very loud mosquitoes buzzing in each ear…
