A MANAGER'S GUIDE TO HEALTH AND SAFETY AT WORK
A resource for all managers responsible for the health, safety and welfare of their staff. Many developments have taken place in the field of health and safety management and increasingly managers are being expected to be more knowledgeable in this area. The room for manoeuvre on the part of employers, with regard to the health and safety of their employees, has been dramatically reduced. Furthermore, the courts are being increasingly less sympathetic towards organizations who do not meet the basic requirements of the law. This text should help managers to unravel the complicated legal obligations, and explains how to establish systems and procedures for effective health and safety management.
