The A-Z of Health and Safety is a major new reference work by an acknowledged expert in an area of crucial importance to every British organization, large and small, private and public. With over 100 entries arranged in an accessible index format, this extensive and fully up to date book covers everything that the Health & Safety professional needs to know in order to conform with both the law and best practice. Health and safety law and practice has changed considerably in recent years. We live in an increasingly litigious society and managers and owners face a growing number of responsibilities and obligations. With its risk assessment-based approach, this book provides a clear, expert summary of the law, issues, risks and obligations under each of the topics covered. The range of entries is extensive and the guidance both expert and practical. This book will prove a constant source of reference and assurance to health and safety specialists across industry and commerce, HR professionals, engineering managers, lawyers, environmental health officers, safety representatives, lecturers and trainers and all those studying for degree level and NEBOSH qualifications. In addition, it will be invaluable to managers of organizations which do not have a health and safety or HR manager but who nevertheless need to know where they stand and what to do.
