Overview

Kloss on 'Occupational Health Law' has become the standard reference work on the subject since it was first published in 1989. Detailed but highly readable, it provides an essential source of information for health professionals working in occupational health and also for human resources staff.

In the years since the 4th edition was written there have been many changes in the field of occupational health, which has achieved a higher profile nationally with the publication of Dame Carol Black's review of the health of Britain's working age population in 2008.  This edition, which has been fully revised, includes new sections on age discrimination and expert witnesses, and the sections on discrimination, especially disability discrimination, the Working Time Regulations, stress related illness, corporate manslaughter and confidentiality, in particular, have been substantially updated.

  • The established work on the subject
  • Fully revised in line with current legislation and case law
  • Essential reference for occupational health, personnel and health and safety departments
  • 'Essential reading... clear, straight to the point... superb value for money'
    —Occupational Safety and Health
