Abstract:
In this guide to occupational safety and health, the authors have taken an international and holistic perspective, foregoing regional perspective models for a self-regulatory, risk management based approach to health and safety at work. Both technical and human factors are considered in all areas from hazardous substances and radiation, noise and vibration, to ergonomics, stress, substance abuse and violence. The book outlines strategies for managing workers' compensation claims and rehabilitation, and for assessing training needs and evaluation courses. It also explains how to implement an overall occupational health and safety management system in a company, integrating this into existing quality management programmes. Each chapter includes a workplace application, further reading recommendations, and end-of-chapter questions.
