  1. Please I want to study environmental management in a Nigerian University…after obtaining my BSC I’ll further my specialization in HSE…. Are they related? Is it a good move? I need advice please

  2. I’m currently a 400 level student from the department of public Health, Federal University of Technology Owerri..
    I want to know the amount for student membership at ISPON

  3. Hi, Ubong. Thank you for this good job you are doing. I have read a few of your posts especially those concerning the Institute of Safety Professionals of Nigeria. I found a few corrections necessary. The official website is as against the one you posted. Also, ISPON is not one of the safety organizations in Nigeria, rather, ISPON is the regulatory body for safety practice in Nigeria.
    If you need inputs in writing about the Institute, you may contact me by email:
