The NEBOSH Certificate is widely recognised within the Construction sector and demonstrates commitment to Health and Safety both internally and externally. Larger Contractors are now demanding a higher level of understanding and a proactive approach to Health and Safety from the Sub Contractors they work with and as Samka Architectural Solutions development and sales strategy has a focus on new clients that uphold best practice Samka Architectural Solutions Limited took the decision earlier this year to bring their Health and Safety In-House, this meant that a senior member of the team would need to take the NEBOSH General Certificate and the job fell to our Managing Director Stephanie Bessant. Stephanie was dispatched to Nottingham in April 2012 to complete an intense two week course and then a further week to compile a project on Risk Management.
Credit where NEBOSH Credit is due…
This week Stephanie has received notification that she passed her exams with a Credit, mainly due to the excellent result for her project work completed within the factory and office environment. Stephanie is already an Affiliate Member of IOSH and has now applied for Tech IOSH membership. Just passing your NEBOSH exam does not automatically give you rights to becoming a Tech IOSH member as you have to prove a background and working knowledge of Health and Safety within your sector.
Stephanie is proud to have passed the exam and is actively assessing and reviewing Policy’s and Procedures, Risk Assessment and Method Statements to ensure that compliance is adhered to.
Stephanie is now considering completing a Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety or enhancing her qualification by specializing and attaining the Construction NEBOSH Certificate.
Alongside the NEBOSH qualification Stephanie has also become a qualified competent person with regard to PAT Testing and has responsibility for ensuring that all existing and new electrical equipment is tested and safe.
Samka Architectural Solutions know that health and safety is paramount and is proactively working to raise standards within their own business and the industry as a whole
