Workplace Health and Safety International Perspectives on Worker Representation by David Walters and Theo Nichols. This book provides a cutting-edge look at the experience of worker representation in the employment relations of workplace health and safety. This book developed from a seminar organized by the Cardiff Work Environment Research Centre (CWERC) and held at the School of Social Sciences, Cardiff University. The book reflects on whether the effectiveness of worker representation is eroded or enhanced by current regulatory and organizational constructs.
