Health and Safety Management: Principles and Best Practice
"The frequently neglected field of health and safety management, the responsibility of many but understood by few, is well served by this comprehensive and well written book. It is, above all, highly informative and a 'must have' for senior practitioners and managers alike."
John Barrell, OBE TD, formerly Chief Executive, The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health
"This is a text for life. A comprehensive work that uniquely integrates occupational health and safety firmly into the international business management environment.... Undoubtedly it will also become a standard text for those embarking upon post graduate study in both occupational health and safety, and business management."
Trevor Cooke, Faculty of Business & Law, Staffordshire University
With increasing stakeholder interest in health and safety management, the onus is being put on organisations to anticipate and manage health and safety risks.
This important new book considers health and safety management as an equal partner to other strategic business risks. Concepts of risk and models of risk management supply the context for the management of health and safety in a range of sectors. By applying the principles of business risk management to health and safety, the authors develop crucial best practice approaches that are applicable on a global platform, irrespective of local legislation.
Dr Colin Fuller and Dr Luise Vassie present the MSc in Health and Safety Management at the University of Leicester.
