Turkey, being an EU candidate country since 1999, is in the process of transforming its Occupational
Health and Safety (OH&S) governance in accordance with the EU's expectations thus changing its legislation and reconstructing its institutional capacity. Having negative experiences in terms of high numbers of occupational accidents and diseases despite its extensive OH&S legislation and the long-established institutions to implement it, the new governance of OH&S in Turkey introduced a different perspective, which tends to transform it substantially. However, supremacy of the economic agenda to the social policy as a distinctive characteristic of candidacy process is challenging the new OH&S governance in Turkey. This study,
therefore, explores the new governance of OH&S during
Turkey's EU candidacy by building on the stance of social policy and OH&S in the EU with a particular emphasis on the new member states. The book will attract the interests of researchers and students in the fields of industrial relations, social policy,
European Studies, and political science.
