""(PART OF BUTTERWORTHS LAW IN CONTEXT SERIES)Rowland: Hazardous Work uniquely provides an integrated approach to the subject rather than focusing on the practitioner market or concentrating on certain aspects of the law backed up by empirical research. Courses on this topic have a strong law element, which makes this a very useful text for students. This book examines the apparent failure of regulatory frameworks to control hazards in the workplace. It also considers the nature of the frameworks and the manner of their implementation and enforcement as well as the impact of sociological and political effects on the organisation of the workplace and general attitudes to health risks encountered at work. Importantly, this leads to a critical evaluation of why current systems are failing to protect workers and suggests ideas for change.This title will be of vital interest to academics and students studying health and safety law, sociologists and those studying occupational health and safety.""
