Effective Management of Health Issues in the Workplace
As Britain's businesses move away from more traditional industrial manufacturing into office and service industries, so the pattern of work and occupational ill health changes. Stress and musculoskeletal problems are now key issues for health and safety professionals. This book provides a reference to the medical background, and covers management issues and legal implications for non-compliance, concentrating on the costs involved, some of which are hidden, and emphasising good management practice.
