Safety at Work
Safety at Work Seventh Edition

Safety at Work, Seventh Edition 7th Edition by  John Ridley. A major objective of this book has been to provide an authoritative, up-to-date guide in all areas of health and safety. The contributing authors are recognized specialists in their fields and each has drawn on his or her personal knowledge and experience in compiling the text, emphasizing those facets most relevant to the safety advisers’ needs. In this, they have drawn material from many sources and the views they have expressed are their own and must not be construed as representing the opinions or policies of their employers nor of any of the organizations which have so willingly provided material. The Book is widely accepted as the most authoritative guide to safety and health in the workplace. Its comprehensive coverage and academically rigorous approach make it essential reading for students on occupational safety and health courses at diploma, bachelor, and master level, including the NEBOSH National Diploma.
