Written by a team of experts on health and safety this handbook provides a reference source covering key aspects of health and safety as well as related environmental and employment information in an A-Z format. Providing clear interpretation of legislation and regulations in accordance with HSE guidance, on a range of subjects from accident reporting to workplaces and welfare facilities, the 2002 handbook has been updated on such topics as accident reporting, COMAH, dangerous substances, fire precautions, first aid, lifting machinery, manual handling and workplaces. "Tolley's Health and Safety at Work Handbook" has been updated to include: The aims and objectives of the Governments' "a revitalising Health and Safety Strategy Statement" and their implications for businesses; new "Training" and "Harassment in the Workplace" chapters, new updated risk assessment chapter.
In addition the handbook lists the current regulations, statutes, HSE publications and guidance, relevant British standards and useful addresses as well as a new introduction updating readers on recent trends in UK health and safety law and enforcement, with a new section on the management of health and safety at work. This handbook will provide a portable reference book for health and safety managers, enforcement officers in local authorities and government, lawyers advising in this field as well as students on NEBOSH and equivalent courses.
