Regulating Health and Safety in the British Mining Industries, 1800-1914
This book explores the emergence and growth of state responsibility for safer and healthier working practices in British mining and the responses of labour and industry to expanding regulation and control. As such it will be valuable to all those with an interest in medical history, occupational health, legal history, and the social history of work in the nineteenth century.
