About this product

Workplaces have many different types of hazards that cause injuries, disabilities and death for thousands of people each year. Having a safe workplace is good for your health and your business. There are immense expenses each year from costs associated with injuries, illnesses, lost wage compensation, insurance premiums, hiring replacement works, damaged equipment and lost production. This affects businesses and the economy in general. 

While many workplaces in the United States have a staff of professionals with degrees and experience in occupational safety and health, the task of developing and implementing injury and illness programs often falls on employees with experience and responsibilities in other areas, like human resources managers, security officers or quality control managers. 

This book provides an introduction to the development of programs that reduce injuries and address regulatory requirements. The Basics of Occupational Safety and Health describes how good health and safety programs improve the sustainability of the organization through continuous improvement.
