The complete TUC guide to everything
TUC: 8 October, 2005
The TUC has published the epic, must-have, one-stop guide for safety reps and anyone else who knows the difference between seeing a safety problem and solving it.
'Hazards at work: Organising for safe and healthy workplaces' is an A4 sized, 334-page information-packed volume and 'is essential reading for safety representatives and anyone with an interest in organising for health and safety,' says TUC.
Its 52 chapters deal not only with all the major hazards, but also show how to organise to make your workplace safe. Practical resources include regular checklists and advice on where to go for help. There's stacks of information on the law and on good practice.
According to TUC: 'Safety reps will find this book invaluable. But it is also a great resource for managers and safety professionals who want to work in partnership with their workforce. Voluntary organisations and enforcement officers will also find it an essential addition to their desktop library.'
