NEBOSH Unit D - (4) tying up your report with a sensible conclusion

Written by Lorna Bleyswyck CMIOSH, PGCE on Nov 04 2014

This post is relevant for all students who started their NEBOSH National/International Diploma before September 2017 and have to complete the Unit D or ID assignment. The last resubmission date for this Unit (2010 specification only) in 29 August 2018. This Unit has been replaced by Unit DNI 2015 specification for all new and current NEBOSH National and International Diploma learners.

In this, my last in a series of 4 blog posts covering the NEBOSH Diploma and International Diplomas' Workplace Assignment, I will be looking at the report's conclusion and how to neatly tie the loop in the final stages by addressing succinctly the various aspects introduced in the earlier stages - not forgetting your executive summary of course, which, although the very first thing your examiner will read, should always be addressed at the very end of your assignment.

Written by Lorna Bleyswyck CMIOSH, PGCE on Oct 21 2014

This post is relevant for all students who started their NEBOSH National/International Diploma before September 2017 and have to complete the Unit D or ID assignment. The last resubmission date for this Unit (2010 specification only) in 29 August 2018. This Unit has been replaced by Unit DNI 2015 specification for all new and current NEBOSH National and International Diploma learners.

Making up nearly half of your report (and worth up to 48 marks), the main body of the NEBOSH Diploma/International Diploma Workplace Assignment is where candidates will largely pass or fail and as such needs to be approached with due diligence. The main body of your report will lead on nicely to your advice or recommendations going forward and should offer the reader a sound 'platform' on which to base your assumptions - here you are 'setting the scene' on which to draw your conclusions.

The Dreaded ‘D’ – (1) tackling your NEBOSH workplace assignment

Written by Lorna Bleyswyck CMIOSH, PGCE on Jul 01 2014

This post is relevant for all students who started their NEBOSH National/International Diploma before September 2017 and have to complete the Unit D or ID assignment. The last resubmission date for this Unit (2010 specification only) in 29 August 2018. This Unit has been replaced by Unit DNI 2015 specification for all new and current NEBOSH National and International Diploma learners.

The Unit D or ID of the NEBOSH Diploma course is an assignment where you, the learner, carry out a detailed review of the health and safety performance of a workplace or organisation and produce a justified action plan to improve performance. The assignment requires that the learner applies the knowledge and understanding gained from their studies of unit A, B and C (national) or IA, IB an IC (international) in a practical environment and to carry out critical analysis and evaluation of information gathered during the review and is typically the last unit to be addressed by the learner.
