Many improvements to health and safety have recently been introduced in the workplace. Issues such as stress, RSI and backache are now recognized and, in part, understood. However, in many other areas progress in slow. Examining workplace safety, this book suggests that the key to future progress lies in the impetus of the environmental movement. Topics covered include management responsibility, the cost of workplace accidents, "sick building syndrome", hazardous chemicals, dust, workplace inspections and European law. Containing over 30 international cases studies, this illustrated text has an extensive bibliography and a directory of where to obtain help and advice.
