0 Reviews

The changing nature of work (contract work, job insecurity, downsizing, privatisation and deregulation) has had a profound effect on employment and health. The book covers government policy, EU directives, health and safety, industrial/employment policies and general welfare. The author, who is head of the British Library Social Policy and Information Service, looks at the response of employers, including the gap between expressing concern over health at work and actually doing anything about it. The review is aimed at practitioners in the fields of health and safety at work and human resource management, at trade unionists and at information professionals working in a business environment. It can be used either as a one-stop by those looking for an introduction to the field, or as a bridge to the research literature by those seeking to enquire more deeply.
