Throughout the book, definitions used by the relevant legislation and the Health and Safety Executive and advice published in Approved Codes of Practice or various Health and Safety Commission/Executive publications have been utilised. Most of the references produced at the end of each Act or Regulation summary in Chapter 15 are drawn from the HSE Books range of publications. The authors’ grateful thanks go to Liz Hughes and Jill Ferrett for proof reading and patience and their administrative help during the preparation of this edition. The authors are particularly grateful to Liz for the excellent study guide that she has written for all NEBOSH students, which is included at the end of this book, for the section on report writing in Chapter 5 and the sections on home safety and cycle safety in Chapter 16. Liz gained an honours degree in psychology at the University of Warwick, later going on to complete a Master’s degree at the same university. She taught psychology in further and higher education, where most of her students were either returning to education after a gap of many years, or were taking a course to augment their existing professional skills. She went on to qualify as a social worker specialising in mental health, and later moved into the voluntary sector where she managed development for a number of years. Liz then helped to set up and manage training for the National Schizophrenia Fellowship (now called Rethink) in the Midlands. We would also like to acknowledge the additional contribution made by Jill Ferrett for the help that she gave during the research for the book and with some of the word processing. Given her background in economics and higher education, her advice on certain legal and economic issues has been particularly valuable. We would like to thank Teresa Budworth, the Chief Executive of NEBOSH, for her support during this sixth edition and various NEBOSH and HSE staff for their generous help and advice. Finally we would like to thank Stephen Vickers, the immediate past Chief Executive of NEBOSH, for his encouragement at the beginning of the project and Sadé Lee and all the production team at Routledge who have worked hard to translate our dream into reality.
