Behind the Mask: Regulating Health and Safety in Britain's Offshore Oil and Gas Industry
The most recent developments in occupational health and safety regulation in the UK's offshore oil industry represent a departure from traditional legal forms. But how should they best be understood and what advantages do they offer over the previous regulatory approaches? This book deploys autopoiesis theory in an examination of risk regulation in the industry. It presents the latest regulations and their potential to address the issues as distinct from previous legal forms and in particular as an example of reflexive law.
