The National Irish Safety Organisation (NISO) has produced this book of
over 1,400 questions and answers to help persons and organisations
develop their acumen in health and safety.
NISO recognised that no amount of legislation or penalties will be
effective unless people can be convinced of the need to change their
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 organisations 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.
