Overview

John Ridley's "Safety at Work", now in its fourth edition, has long been the bible of the health and safety professional, attracting praise from the the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health as "essential reading," and becoming the first point of reference for all serious students of the subject.

Now the fundamental contents of this comprehensive work are presented here in a user-friendly format, suitable for readers whose needs are less demanding than those of a professional member of IOSH. This will include students for the NEBOSH National General Certificate examinations, and the IOSH Managing Safely and Working Safely awards. It will, however, also encompass other readers whose roles demand a level of knowledge and competence in health and safety practice, including human resources managers, office and site managers and all line staff with health and safety responsibilities. This book will prove to be as indispensable as its predecessor to a much wider audience, and as such will be an invaluable addition to the bookshelves of anyone working within the field of safety at work.
