This very helpful book offers a comprehensive and jargon-free series of quick-fix answers and definitions for those occasions (all too frequent) when real information is needed urgently.
The book sets out alphabetically the words, phrases, abbreviations and acronyms encountered almost daily by anyone involved in the health and safety field. Explanations are written in understandable language and the reader is directed to the original sources of the information where fuller detail can be found if necessary.
The book will appeal to workers in most organisations, from shop-floor to director, to trades unionists, safety representatives and supervisors, operators of small businesses, students working towards qualifications in occupational health and safety - in fact anyone with a care for better and safer working practices and environments.
