Paper – The management of safety and health
Outline answers and guidance given in the NEBOSH examiner’s ReportSection 1Question 1(i)For part (i) of this question, candidates were required to outline the factors that should be consideredwhen carrying out a risk assessment. They were expected to identify factors such as
the activities being undertaken,
the hazards involved,
the likelihood and severity of the harm that might be caused,
the number of employees exposed
the frequency of their exposure,
the competence of the persons carrying out the activities,
an evaluation of existing control measures and
the competence of the person carrying out the assessment.Very few candidates were able to provide comprehensive answers to this part of the question. Manygave detailed and lengthy accounts of one or two factors only and thus restricted the number of marksthey could be awarded.(ii)Part (ii) was not well answered, with many candidates clearly having little understanding of the term`suitable and sufficient' in this particular context. For a risk assessment to be deemed suitable andsufficient,
it should identify the significant risks arising out of the work activity,
it should identify and prioritise the measures that need to be taken to comply with the relevantstatutory provisions,
it should be appropriate to the nature of the work and, finally,
it should be such that it remains valid for a reasonable period of time.(iii)Answers to part (iii) were lacking in substance but better candidates identified circumstances as:
changes to work processes or methods;
introduction of new plant;
changes in the scale of production;
the availability of new information concerning hazardous substances or processes;
accidents or occurrences of ill-health;
results of monitoring, including inspections, audits and health surveillance;
changes in legislation;
changes affecting personnel (to take particular account of disablement, pregnancy and youth); and
routinely after the passage of a reasonable interval of time.Section 2
