NEBOSH Fast Track Learners – part 3

NEBOSH Fast Track Learners – part 3

I am offering you the power of command and control of people by use of the spoken word. This is real, it’s genuine and it works. People will wilt in your presence, give way to you in conversation and accept your opinions quicker than ever before. Finally, you will be listened to in a meaningful and less patronising manner.

The issue is not whether these techniques work or not but rather will you put them to good work? You should be feeling confident and assured after reading the first four blog posts. If this is your first time reading this blog, go back to the first post in the series called Upgrade your NEBOSH to a distinction before we move on.

In this blog post, we are revising the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 because it covers a full learning outcome in week one of NEBOSH. Additionally it can be used in week two of NEBOSH to illustrate your answers towards a distinction level of competence. After committing it to memory you can use your knowledge to resolve arguments, dispel safety myths and effortlessly persuade people. This will gain better commitment to the strong safety culture which we all seek.

Let’s get started – download your MHSWR 1999 revision sheet from the Resources tab on our NEBOSH page.

Remember you are working with your right brain, so the following applies:

  • Use imagination
  • Create pictures
  • Hear sounds and taste odours
  • Link one image to the next

Your feedback will be most welcome, via my Linkedin – otherwise, enjoy!

Watch out for the next post that will deepen your knowledge of Regulation 4 of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 to a level that many safety professionals can only dream about (NEBOSH Fast track learners – part 4).

Reminder of accelerated learning technique

  • Step 1 – Create a mental folder; a familiar room or place
  • Step 2 – Create images to represent the text you wish to remember and put it in the folder
  • Step 3 – Create an action to link the images together

Training is an investment for success
