This volume assesses the legacy of the Robens Report, the intellectual foundation of modern OHS law and practice in Australia and many other countries, following the Report’s 30th anniversary.
The authors confront the challenges facing OHS regulators and stakeholders in a new and different world dominated by service industries and globalisation rather than manufacturing industries and protection. They explore new models of OHS regulation that take account of gaps and deficiencies in the current arrangements.
Particular topics examined are:
+ the type, mix, content and coverage of OHS standards,
+ systematic OHS management and the development of organisational capability,
+ strategies for effective worker participation and representation,
+ models for achieving small business compliance,
+ regulatory responses to changes in work organisation, responsive enforcement and adapted inspection, and
+ restorative justice.
