Easy to use, this book has been found by many companies to be invaluable in the drive to reduce workplace accidents, incidents of ill health and 'near misses'. Needless to say, it also helps users to comply with relevant health and safety legislation and regulations.
Packed with useful advice, this latest edition of 'Essentials of Health and Safety at Work' is divided into 25 chapters. The first of these suggests how to tackle the basics of health and safety, as well as outlining ways to identify, assess and control the activities that might cause harm in a business.
Chapters 2 to 25 are written for people who need to know more about particular health and safety subjects - including managers, health and safety representatives, contractors and agency workers. Indeed, the fourth edition benefits from several new chapters dealing with topics such as slips and trips, work at height, contractors and agency workers, and general fire safety, plus there are new sections covering stress, rehabilitation and sickness absence.
