The Insurance department congratulates Ridwaan Omar on gaining his NEBOSH National General Certificate on Occupational Health & Safety. Ridwaan acts on behalf of numerous organisations in defending Employers' and Public Liability insurance claims. He also has considerable experience of representing organisations during Health & Safety investigations and proceedings over the past 20 years and his appetite for regulatory work started early in his working career whilst in the criminal department.
The NEBOSH course covered topics from management of health and safety including legislation, management systems, understanding people, culture and systems of work, monitoring and measuring performance and risk assessments on common workplace risks.
Ridwaan believes that the further training has allowed him, whilst acting on behalf of employers in regulatory and employer liability claims, to better understand their perspective on health and safety in the workplace and the behavioural factors which may influence a safe workplace and the underlying and root causes of any accident.
