The second edition of this title provides a comprehensive guide to all aspects of health and safety at work for managers who have responsibility for ensuring safety, health and welfare of staff and visitors to their company. As well as advising managers on their legal obligations, in an area where law can be complicated and difficult to interpret, it also explains how to establish systems and procedures to maintain an appropriate level of control over health risks and hazards. This new edition is up-to-date with the latest legislation (including EC directives) relating to this important area. The revised section on "People at Work" now includes a new chapter on stress at work, which reflects an awareness of this issue. Other topics covered include principal legal requirements, reporting, recording and investigation of accidents, diseases and dangerous occurrences, principles of accident prevention, human factors, ergonomics, occupational diseases and conditions, first aid, dangerous substances, engineering safety, fire prevention, electrical safety, structural safety, construction and contractors, mechanical handling, the working environment, and office safety. A list of statutes, regulations, codes of practice, British standards and other sources of information are contained in the book. These direct the reader to further help which may be needed when considering new projects, establishing safe working procedures, identifying legal requirements and in measuring appropriate health and safety standards.
