Our dedicated case study

Welcome toJaffer Print

International Workplace’s unique Jaffer Print case study allows students to take on the role of Health and Safety Manager within a high pressured print and production company.

As the Health and Safety Manager of Jaffer Print, you will get involved in dealing with health and safety issues as they arise! You will advise different members of staff on best practice, and stop any dodgy procedures before they lead to trouble. We’ve even produced a short documentary about an accident at Jaffer Print, where you get to take on a practical role and help with the investigation. What caused the accident? Who is at fault? What is the best practice for moving forward? You decide. The Jaffer Print case study runs throughout the NEBOSH International General Certificate course, and provides a fun, interactive and informative way of applying theory to practice in a real-life environment.

You will receive a personal tutor who will individually mark assessed exercises, mock exams, give feedback, make sure your study is on track and help you prepare for the written and practical exams. And if you have any problems you can contact our dedicated administration team who are always happy to help!
