Workplace Safety: For Occupational Health and Safety (Safety at Work)

by JohnR.Ridley (Editor), JohnChanning (Editor)


Managing safety in the workplace requires a wide range of safety and health subjects to be mastered. Traditionally, this has been achieved by reference to an encompassing text such as Safety at Work - widely acknowledged as the authoritative guide to safety and health in the workplace. Written by a team of specialist contributors under the joint editorship of John Ridley and John Channing, it has been prepared in association with the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health and covers their academic requirements for membership. In order to make elements of this authoritative work available to those who require information on only one of the major aspects of occupational safety and health, the following modular texts, drawn from the fifth edition of Safety at Work, are now available: Safety Law Risk Management Occupational Hygiene Workplace Safety These separate texts include all the latest changes in health, safety, employment and environmental legislation and are essential reading for all who need to have knowledge of the subject. Particular emphasis is placed on the role of the manager and recognises the shift in employment numbers from manufacturing to service industries. Important coverage is given to the influences on health and safety, practical safety management and behavioural techniques and to the management of chemicals, ergonomics and the environment.
