Short Description

NEBOSH International Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety - UNIT D Guide...


Nebosh D guide My rough notes typed up – hopefully they make some sense. This is following the NEBOSH Unit D Guide – downloadable from their website. 1. Assignment Brief It’s for management. To examine a work area and review current systems in place for managing risks and H&S recommendations and identify shortcomings in system. Identify hazards/risks and shortcomings and prioritise remedial action and to convince management to take action. 2. Structure of the Report Aims/Objectives/Methodology A detailed review of the health and safety performance of your chose company and to produce a justified action plan that will improve the health and safety of the company. The objectives are the actions that will ensure that the aim of the report is met. To ensure that the aims are manageable if you were to impose the recommendations across a multi site operation. Methodology is where you went, what you saw and how you collated the information. Description of the Organisation What the business does Where they are based What site – single site or multi site What happens? What processes How many people Shiftwork? Unionised – H&S Reps? Any vehicles Legal Environment Don’t give a description of HASWA, MHWR, WHSR etc instead describe how various pieces of legislation impacts on your company in terms of Criminal, Statute, Civil, Breach of Statutory Duty things like COSHH, PUWER - what does your company do to comply?

Review of H&S Management Systems Description of H&S Management System and Gap Analysis Give a brief (paragraph) description of the management system in your organisation and how it applies there. What is in place and what are the shortfalls in the system i.e. compare either HSG65 or 18001 to what you have in your company and how you either comply/not comply with it and how you propose to comply. It is probably an idea to do the summary of the Gap Analysis in a table format. Hazard Identification – Physical and Welfare Risk Assessment Physical and Welfare These are the hazards from B&C and identify a range of hazards and do a risk assessment for the most hazardous on each B&C. Do about ten from each element and do a risk assessment for the most hazardous element – one for B and one C. Again it may be easier to do the initial hazards in a table format. Do an analysis of how you have prioritised your hazards with a summary of how you calculate the final risk rating. Again it would be easier to summarise this in a table and then do a risk assessment on element from Unit B and one element from Unit C. Conclusions Summary of things looked at in a general précis refer back to aims and objectives summary. Don’t put any new information into this area. Recommendations Put them in order of prioritisation and include elements from the gap analysis and risk assessment findings with importance, reason, cost and benefit to the organisation of doing this. Action Plan – Management System and Hazards and Risks These should be SMART based on the results of the gap analysis and hazard identification process and should include responsibilities, cost, success criteria and review date. Then do an Executive Summary giving a brief overview of what you have found and how you propose they should be carried out.
