Health, Safety & Environment Test for Managers & Professionals: GT200/12 (Managers & Professionals) [Paperback]. This book contains everything you need to know to book, prepare for and sit the health, safety and environment test for managers and professionals. It contains all the questions and answers for tests taken from April 2012.

After consultation with industry we have refreshed the question bank and introduced new elements to the test structure. The new test now includes behavioural case studies, knowledge questions on respiratory risks, a dedicated chapter on CDM and an additional section on the environment.

There are behavioural case studies based on the core principles of the industry’s free film ‘Setting out’. The film explores what employers and sites must do for workers, and how workers need to behave and interact to constantly changing site conditions.

A dedicated set of respiratory risk questions have been created to help improve awareness and to promote necessary controls. It is widely recognised that management of health risks by industry have not improved at the same rate as improvements in the management of safety risks. Managing the environment goes hand in hand with health and safety. Therefore new questions have been introduced to help everyone understand some basic environmental responsibilities.

A revision DVD is available, which offers the chance to work through the whole question bank and complete simulated tests.

There are also separate publications that support the HS&E test for operatives and specialists, so please ensure that you are revising for the right test.


 

Health and Safety Law [Paperback] The estimated annual cost to society of health and safety failure is £18bn. The Government has recently set out targets for the first time which aim to reduce the impact of these failures by 30% over the next ten years.

The last decade has seen significant changes in the approach to health and safety legislation. It is no longer just dangerous industries for which regulation is vital. The rise in service sector industries has meant an increase in employees being exposed to risks such as musculo-skeletal injury and stress-related illnesses.

At a time when both public and private sector organisations are becoming ever more aware of the importance of promoting positive public images and enjoying good standing among stakeholders, safety specialists are keen to persuade managers to take a more comprehensive view of how health and safety can contribute to wider business objectives. It is no longer enough just complying with the minimum requirements of the law.
