The latest edition of 'A Manager's Guide to Health and Safety at Work,' published on 25 March, has been thoroughly updated to give full information and guidance on the recent British Health and Safety Commission Guidance on Directors' responsibilities for health and safety which, when enacted as new legislation, will extend and intensify the current corporate duties and liabilities of directors under health and safety law. Unravelling all the legal complexities, this practical guide also explains how to establish systems and procedures for effective health and safety management in any type of organization. In addition, a number of modifications and changes have been made to the previous edition including sections on competent persons, work related upper limb disorders, revised first aid procedures, manual handling injuries and mobile work equipment. Packed with up-to-date information this book continues to provide hands-on, jargon free advice for all levels of management, particularly in the case of those small and medium sized enterprises who may not be in a position to employ a health and safety specialist. The author, Jeremy Stranks, is a freelance trainer, consultant and expert witness, in addition to being the author of many books on health and safety, including the 'Handbook of Health and Safety practice.' Previously Jeremy held positions as Chief Health and Safety adviser to the Milk Marketing Board and Dairy Crest Ltd.
