I am an Explosive Remnants of War (ERW) consultant and also a HSE Part 1 commercial diver, my work involves clearing old munitions for site redevelopment, whether it’s for housing estates on land to wind farms offshore. I have just completed my NEBOSH NGC courses and what a shock to the system, having never had anything to do with Health & Safety before. The instructors were fantastic and taught at a speed that was comfortable, but so many subjects to cover in such a short time; I was thinking I had dementia by day 3. There is a lot of homework that needs to be completed each night, but it helps the subject matter sink in a little easier, plus you then have good revision notes for the exam.Try to read up on Health and Safety prior to starting the course, on line there are some good tips for the mnemonics that would be great to learn before the course started and will be very helpful in the exam. The instructors will cover the subjects over time, and the mnemonics will then make sense, there are loads of 5 rules for this and 7 rules for that, and its easy to get mixed up on the day of the exam, if you can pre learn them then life will be easier.You will need high lighter pens and page marker stickers to mark relevant parts of the book just to help with revision for the exam.The venue is almost new, great welfare facilities, and a sandwich van that comes every day at lunchtime.The instructors are contactable almost 24/7, and encourage the students to call them for any help and advise up till about 22;00hrs. This is a great bonus as if something hasn’t sunk in or you have forgotten it while doing your homework, you can call and they will put you on the right track.
