The National Irish Safety Organisation (NISO) has produced this book of over 1,400 questions and answers to help persons and organizations develop their acumen in health and safety.
NISO recognized that no amount of legislation or penalties will be
effective unless people can be convinced of the need to change their the behaviour to become safety conscious in order to avoid hazards and risks in the workplace. This can only be done through information and training.
NISO has always been convinced that safety and health quizzes have an important role to play along with other forms of training. It is with this in mind that this book was produced to give persons a better understanding of safety and health issues. To aid the reader, the questions and answers have been divided into 31 sections.
This book will prove useful to persons and organizations who may wish to have in-house safety and health quizzes or for those preparing for the NISO Safety and Health Quiz. (Details available from NISO). The book can also be used for reference purposes.
