The fundamental contents of John Ridley's comprehensive ""Safety at Work"" are presented in this book in a more user-friendly format, suitable for readers whose needs are less demanding than those of a professional member of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health. These will primarily be students for the NEBOSH Certificate Level examinations and the ""Managing Safely"" and ""Working Safely"" awards. The book should also be of interest to others whose roles demand a level of knowledge and competence in health and safety practice, including human resources managers, office and site managers, and all staff with line responsibility for health and safety matters.
