Nice thread here! Please keep up the good work.
However, what advice can you give a fresh Urban and Regional Planning graduate awaiting service on the best HSE career part to follow.
Though, while in school, I was opportuned to undergo few courses in Disaster Risk management, Environmental Impact assessment and Geographical Information Science, which all fall under the sphere of Environmental management. My undergraduate thesis also centered on Environmental Health.
Also, I stumbled on Novelle site. I got to know that they offers HSE 1, 2, 3 certification courses approved by UK SHE. Based on one of the expert here insistence on joining ISPON/NISP first before going further in HSE career, I wanna ask, is the certificate issued by UK SHE on HSE 1, 2, 3 equivalent to one issued by ISPON and is it recongnise by ISPON (will it be considered when one want to join ISPON in any of their membership cadre).
Personally, I prefer HSE courses toward obtaining UK SHE flouted by Novelle because the course structure is more organised, well structured, globally recognised and a little bit cheap too (it is around $150).
Your advise and reaction pls!

Parrotpal:ISPON accepts only it's own GHSE and HSE level 3 alone for registration as a member. The only exception is if you already have a NEBOSH certificate, you may be considered.
|Re: Any HSE Professionals In The House? by OmaniPadmeHum: 8:52pm On Dec 09|
Please note that there is an almost similar curriculum for HSE Levels 1,2&3. While that of Novelle is appealing, I will advise that you do that of ISPON and pursue your membership. When you get that you can choose to do Novelle's as a refresher any time. Luckily it isn't too expensive (hopefully).
I recommend you do ISPON like mixcwell has said, then maybe Novelle as Refresher, then NEBOSH. Or you do Just ISPON and then go straight to NEBOSH. Recall that the NEBOSH program is wider in scope and a little bit more advanced.
After this, the next thing to ask yourself is if you want to major or specialize or develop strength in any particular area within the HSE Science/Engineering/Management Discipline. Then you develop your self, your profile and qualifications to this area. At this sort of advanced level you can do a lot including consult, teach, invent and patent, work for a company etc. All in all you have the foundation and then the advanced or specialized skills and knowledge.
|Re: Any HSE Professionals In The House? by OmaniPadmeHum: 9:04pm On Dec 09|
Relatively cheapness/cost is not a generic idea. My idea of what is cheap might differ from yours and vice versa.
The MBA degree simply applies to any discipline. It is geared towards entrepreneurs and managers. It is a generic masters with immense benefits especially when you are running/will run a business or managing/will manage people and resources in an organization.
Another course that is also good is the Project Management Professional Course. This is also good and quite related to HSE and Business Administration. You may want to give it a try.
When you say courses, we believe you are referring to HSE Professional Courses right? If you look through this thread you will discover that a lot of us recommend a particular path in becoming a HSE Professional. Start with NISP/ISPON, levels 2&3.
You may need to be more specific in what you seek and why you seek it and what benefits you are trying to derive from it. Hopefully that will help us in pointing you to the right direction. Kindly oblige us.

Are you still confused on where to enroll for Health and safety program?
Search no more, the guide below is all you need.
|Re: Any HSE Professionals In The House? by Parrotpal(m): 2:31pm On Dec 10|
Thank you sir for the detailed response.
However, I will prefer the Environmental specialty considering by educational background.
I went through the previous pages of this thread, and I
understand that NEBOSH focuses mainly on the 'health' specialty I. e Occupational health, that only IEMA another certification is good for those who prefer the environmental side of HSE.
What is your take? IEMA popularity, visibility, recognition etc. Hope it is well know by HSE recruiting firms or agency.
Because I will prefer the IEMA route after the ISPON HSE 3, or is there any NEBOSH certification that focuses on the environmental specialty?
|Re: Any HSE Professionals In The House? by Parrotpal(m): 2:55pm On Dec 10|
Thank you sir.
What is the requirements for joining ISPON either as an associate or full member after their HSE 3 certification? Any writing or oral exam(s), professional pupilage, report submissions etc., not forgetting the cost too.
From the ISPON website, I noticed they focus more on 'health' and 'safety' ignoring 'environment' because they repeatedly refer to themselves as health and safety professionals. Is it that they do not have locus standi in the environmental specialty. Though, they listed Environmental management auditing and Environmental Impact Assessment as one of their core area of competence.
Have, you heard about Nigeria Environmental Society? What is their relationship with HSE?
|Re: Any HSE Professionals In The House? by OmaniPadmeHum: 5:22pm On Dec 10|
Please it is not correct that NEBOSH focuses on occupational health. No Sir. It focuses on more on Safety/Industrial Hygiene and little on Occupational Health.
NEBOSH also has a Diploma course on Environmental Management. But I doubt if any Nigerian accredited trainer offers this yet.
Secondly IEMA isn't as recognized as NEBOSH. Yes they focus on Environment but they aren't really known by recruiting firms or agencies. As a matter of fact, few environmentalists know them. Secondly, like NEBOSH, IEMA is quite expensive. Usually after most people do NEBOSH they don't even bother about IEMA. In Nigeria of today (may be it might change tomorrow), NEBOSH is much more recognized that IEMA and will give a lot of edge.
So what you can do is get the ISPON, do IEMA, then do other specialized courses on various aspects of Environmental Management /Sciences/Engineering. I will however advise that if you can do NEBOSH, then please do it.
Like I always hint you can:
-Get a job (work as an environmentalist/HSE professional) in an organization
-Consult/Offer professional services and
-Or Design/Patent based on R & D
These are the four core areas of any professional. Some people combine more than one or even engage in all four.
The R& D part isn't well developed in Nigeria as we are not serious with science and technology. We don't even fund our universities properly. As per the getting a job part, in organisations, the Unit is usually HSE, then under it sub units like Environment, Safety etc then come in. It is always good to be conversant with all three aspects. If you look at your career path, you'll end up being the Manager or Director of HSE. At that level you can't say '' Oh.. I am just an Environmentalist... ''. The Deputy Director of HSE in DPR for instance cannot claim she doesn't know Safety or Occupational health. As a junior staff she was an environmental officer, but as she grew she can't have limited knowledge. No one will even hear that as an excuse. As much as you can, know that HSE is a discipline and you need to know each component as they are interrelated.
Based on the options above as a professional, you will tailor your growth and development towards any or a combination of the four aspects I listed above.

Environment. I would suggest Environment. As a microbiologist you can focus on Environmental Microbiology and how you can use the knowledge for impact assessment/studies, waste management and pollution control. However, if you have done basic HSE, you might want to add this as an additional strength. That you can also fit into Safety if need be. This can be a selling strength to market yourself during your interview.
The DPR laboratories for now do not run samples on environmental matrices. These are done in third party accredited labs. The DPR only runs analysis on Crude and Refined Petroleum Products in their Labs. There is no DPR lab Nation wide that analyzes Soil, Water, Air samples for environmental Characteristics & Parameters yet.

House! Does ISPON give you supervisor for the project like undergraduate? How is the screening questions like? Do i need to "jack" for that?
|Re: Any HSE Professionals In The House? by agabusta: 9:09am On Dec 11|
Hello Phobic, sorry for replying late. No, you are not given a supervisor. You'll just be given a list of topics from which you will choose anyone you like and write on something similar to the topic.
The screening questions are simple HSE questions. They will also ask you about where you are working and the role, etc
I didn't really jack like that, and the main question they asked me I got it wrong as it was ambiguous and they were all laughing at me, but I was still admitted. They asked me how one can test the efficacy of the agent in the extinguisher. I was still brainstorming and they then replied that one just has to look at the gauge. The answer looks silly to me anyways; in my own opinion it does not answer the question.
|Re: Any HSE Professionals In The House? by Parrotpal(m): 6:40pm On Dec 11|
Kindly react to the above sir.
|Re: Any HSE Professionals In The House? by phobic: 7:09pm On Dec 12|

Any Construction Project requires a balanced view of what is required to be achieved as against the best and most efficient methods of work that will ensure the safety of both personnel and the environment. A project is essentially a collaborative enterprise that place responsibilities on all parties, from the owner to the contractor and subcontractor. All stages of a project require evaluation of the potential H&S risks that may develop.
This training course will provide the delegates with the necessary knowledge to successfully manage health and safety in a construction project and not face surprises. Legislation, safety plans, occupational health and the assessment of risks are all covered. These topics if not clearly thought out in good time can very well lead to unfortunate delays.Delegates, by applying this knowledge, will be able to persuade colleagues and contractors on the correct methods to follow in matters of health and safety.
Participants will develop the following competencies
Health and Safety Legislation
Common Construction Hazards and Controls
Pre-Construction Safety Reports
See more details below:

OmaniPadmeHum:Bro, I hope Novelle Center is a good training center for NEBOSH IGC cos I plan to train with them come next year. Share your perspective; and if you know of a better training center pls share. Also, I would like you to suggest a good center where one can train as a "first aider". Tried RED CROSS in Oyo state (Onireke, Ibadan to be precise) last month. they told me about how to register as a member but not about the training. They said there is nothing like that in their office.
