Human resource managers are faced with crucial issues of occupational health and safety.Industries have work related accidents due to poorly designed plant and equipment inherent in the work environment.Work related diseases affect the performance of workers.It is against this background that health and safety should not be viewed as a separate function or responsibility but as a broader initiative that aims at improving productivity, profitability and competitiveness of a firm.This book,therefore,provides health and safety programmes that when put in place will positively affect the performance of firms.It highlights the hazards,causes of work accidents and illness,significance of health and safety,health and safety policies,safety committees,health and safety audits among others.The book is supported by the Domino Theory of Accidents and the Situational Theory of Accidents.The analysis provides useful information to the Management of firms. It is very useful to Human Resource Managers,Scholars in Universities and Colleges, the Policy makers, Health and Safety officers and anyone who has interests in the wellbeing of workers at work.
