NEBOSH announces first open book examinations

NEBOSH, one of the world’s leading providers of health, safety and environmental qualifications and courses, has announced a transformation project that will enable all of its learners to carry out their assessments from a safe location of their choosing.

Like organisations around the world, NEBOSH is adapting to the challenges and opportunities presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. It has therefore bought forward and expanded plans to offer remote and online assessments for its range of qualifications and courses.

The NEBOSH National and International General Certificates will be the first qualifications to offer remote assessments and, on 6 August 2020, the first open book examination will take place. An open book examination – a method widely used by other awarding bodies and universities – enables learners to take the examination in a safe location of their choosing. The new approach also has the added benefit of enabling people in even more countries around the world to study towards and gain a NEBOSH qualification.

Unlike invigilated paper-based examinations, NEBOSH’s open book examinations will present learners with a real-life scenario followed by a related series of questions that require learners to demonstrate the application of their skills.

David Morgan, NEBOSH Interim Chief Executive, says: “The health of our learners is paramount. We want them to feel safe when they carry out their NEBOSH assessments and the best way to do this is transform the way we do things.

“We have worked closely with our regulator, SQA Accreditation, to maintain the rigour and recognition people have come to expect from NEBOSH over its 40-year history. COVID-19 has certainly presented us with some challenges but the changes we’re making will bring us up to speed with the latest awarding technology so that learners can complete their studies and gain the qualification they have worked hard for.”

Learners who wish to register for an examination can do so via their NEBOSH accredited Learning Partner. Further information, including a selection of guidance and support resources, is available at: www.nebosh.org.uk/obe

Assessing you safely- Introducing NEBOSH open book examinations

NEBOSH, like organisations around the world, is adapting to the challenges and opportunities presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.

NEBOSH want people to feel safe when organising or attending a NEBOSH assessment. They have therefore brought forward and expanded plans to offer remote and online assessments for a range of qualifications and courses.

The first phase of this project is to introduce open book exams for both the NEBOSH National and International General Certificates – units NG1, IG1, NGC1 and IGC1. This will replace in-person closed book exams and enable learners to sit their NEBOSH assessment in their own home or another safe and suitable location.

NEBOSH is currently adapting our internal processes and infrastructure to deliver the open book exams and anticipate that the first assessments will take place during July. People wishing to register for an assessment will be able to do so through their Learning Partner once these details have been finalised – this will be communicated via your Learning Partner as well as through NEBOSH’s website and social media channels.

NEBOSH is also looking at alternatives for those people ready to sit a GC2 exam. Again, they will communicate the details of this as soon as they can.

Use of face masks designated KN95

HSE, UK writes;

Introduction

A substantial number of face masks, claiming to be of KN95 standards, provide an inadequate level of protection and are likely to be poor quality products accompanied by fake or fraudulent paperwork. These face masks may also be known as filtering facepiece respirators.

KN95 face maskKN95 face mask

KN95 is a performance rating under the Chinese standard GB2626:2006, the requirements of which are broadly the same as the European standard BSEN149:2001+A1:2009 for FFP2 facemasks. However, there is no independent certification or assurance of their quality and products manufactured to KN95 rating are declared as compliant by the manufacturer. 

Personal protective equipment (PPE) cannot be sold or supplied as PPE unless it is CE marked. The only exception is for PPE that is organised by the UK Government for use by NHS or other healthcare workers where assessments have been undertaken by HSE as the Market Surveillance Authority. 

Action required

KN95 must not be used as PPE at work as their effectiveness cannot be assured.

Masks that are not CE marked and cannot be shown to be compliant must be removed from supply immediately. If these masks have not been through the necessary safety assessments, their effectiveness in controlling risks to health cannot be assured for anyone buying or using them. They are unlikely to provide the protection expected or required.

If any are CE marked, suppliers must be able to demonstrate how they know the documentation and CE marking is genuine, supported by Notified Body documentation showing compliance with the essential health and safety requirements as required by the Personal Protective Equipment Regulations (EU) 2016/425.

Relevant legal documents

The importance of lighting in industrial spaces

SHP Magazine writes;

While plenty of attention is paid to access, hygiene and cleanliness, with companies appreciating the importance of providing safe passage for workers and vehicles, clearing up any spillages promptly, and offering clean facilities, too many firms underestimate the impact their lighting strategy has on health and safety. That’s according to Ken Eddleston, Lighting Product Manager at Chalmit.

Corona virus advise for employers

SHP Magazine writes;

The government has decided that its 5 tests (protecting the NHS, consistent falls in death rates, consistent falls in the infection rates, solving operational problems, and avoiding a second peak) for lifting lockdown restrictions have been met. Non-essential shops were permitted to open from Monday, as long as they comply with coronavirus guidelines, with local authorities and the HSE able to take enforcement action against shops which do not follow the guidelines for keeping people safe.

Occupational health and safety

SHP Magazine writes;

Occupational health and safety

Occupational health is a key priority for business.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has, since the introduction of the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974, seemed to have been concentrating more of its efforts on managing the safety rather than health aspect of its remit. While there have been some adjustments over time for what is recorded as a workplace fatality, the organisation’s focus has been successful in reducing annual workplace fatalities from around 650 in 1974 to 144 in 2015/16 (or under 100 when adjusted to align with 1974 reporting requirements).

The HSE rightly promotes the important advances that have been made, proudly stating a positive message about the UK’s health and safety record being ‘the envy of much of the world’ and one that continues support innovation and productivity. As the organisation makes clear, its challenge going forward is to now improve even further on this impressive record. A key part of that process will see an increasing focus on occupational health to ensure British employees are given maximum protection to lower the risk of suffering a work-related illnesses, enabling them to do their jobs within the best possible environment. With 1.2 million people in 2014/15 suffering from an illness they believed was caused or made worse by their work, and thousands dying from work-related cancers – now is the time to act.

There is also a legal and moral responsibility on employers to do whatever is reasonably practicable to support this agenda and ensure they are taking all the appropriate measures to prevent work-related ill health.

In addition to compliance with general duties under the Health and Safety at Work etc Act and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, some more specific legal duties are relevant to the common health problems. For example:

  • Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH) and Approved Code of Practice deals with, among other things, substances that cause asthma. This includes an extensive list ranging from chemicals used for industrial processes to everyday items found in a working environment such as the by-products of certain food types, as well as paint additives and office cleaning products. COSHH also covers fumes, dusts, vapours, gases and even nanotechnology.
  • Manual Handling Operations Regulations are relevant for many musculo-skeletal disorder (MSD) problems. Identifying work-related health risks may not be straightforward, but there are a number of sources that can be used.

In order to safeguard workers, the cause of occupational health risks must first be known. Once the main risks, which include musculo-skeletal disorders as well as potential complications caused by excessive dust and noise, are determined then action can be taken to risk assess these areas individually in the same way as safety issues.

It is important to determine not only the individuals or groups of individuals which are most likely to be exposed to these risks but also the degree to of this potential exposure and the likely consequences resulting from it. This knowledge will also be useful when recruiting new personnel or during rehabilitation for an employee who has suffered from a work-related health ailment to ensure the working environment does not adversely affect any pre-existing medical condition.

Attendance management or, more specifically, monitoring of sickness absence has increasingly become a major occupational health-related issue with many large employers. Information obtained from more tightly-managed attendance records is often an invaluable resource for a company or organisation’s Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) operation (as well as its Human Resources department) and can be very useful in spotting possible work-related health problems.

Through analysis of these records, a SHE manager can determine if there are certain jobs or parts of the workplace where absence tends to be higher which may indicate the potential of an occupational health risk within an organisation. While some degree of caution needs to be exercised when analysing absence patterns, this can unveil common issues including high levels of back pain or work related upper limb disorder symptoms to be associated with certain types of work.

More detail may be available from medically-certificated absences, which tend to be over seven days, than from self-certificated absence. However, it is important to bear in mind that absence certificates are mainly completed by GPs who have little experience or training in occupational health. Some sensitivity may also be needed about personal information for individuals that is protected by data protection laws.

As with any health and safety problems, the hierarchy of control measures in Schedule 1 of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations should be followed. Where possible, removing the hazard is the best option. Reliance on individual protection through personal protective equipment should normally be a last resort.

There are many examples of successful intervention in HSE guidance. Often the process of managing occupational health only requires good communication between managers and workers. There is usually no need to employ specialist assistance or experts although involvement of occupational physicians and specialists can be cost effective in appropriate circumstances.

When expert advice is needed it may not necessarily mean that medical opinion is required. For many musculo-skeletal disorder problems, for example, the views of an ergonomist might be more appropriate or for an asthma problem, the insights of an occupational hygienist are more likely to carry greater weight.

While there are a small number of occupational safety and health advisers in operation, specialist services in this area are not well developed in the UK at present. The HSE is, however, keen to promote the development of better sources of advice and given its increasing focus in the area of occupational health as the new frontier in developing greater health and safety in UK workplaces, I suspect we will see future growth in this market.
