Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) is a
complex area which interacts widely with a broader spectrum of business
interests and concerns. To date OHS has been confined to the periphery of Human
Resource Management (HRM), where its role, influence and importance have been
overlooked. This text sets out to reposition OHS in HRM and business agendas.
This book unravels the complex range of factors affecting OHS policy,
practice and outcomes. These factors are then placed into context within the
international airline, call centre and nuclear power industries. The author
presents a wide range of primary and secondary research in order to offer an
accessible framework for OHS in contemporary occupational settings.
will be essential reading for students, practitioners and professional academic
audiences who seek a broader understanding of the relationship and interaction
between HRM principles, policies and practices and OHS.
