Description

Health and Safety: Risk Management is the clearest and most comprehensive book on risk management available today. This newly revised fifth edition takes into account new developments in legislation, standards and good practice. ISO 45001, the international health and safety management system standard, is given comprehensive treatment, and the latest ISO 9004 and ISO 19011 have also been addressed.

The book is divided into four main parts. Part 1.1 begins with a basic introduction to the techniques of health and safety risk management and continues with a description of ISO 45001. Part 1.2 covers basic human factors including how the sense organs work and the psychology of the individual. Part 2.1 deals with more advanced techniques of risk management including advanced incident investigation, audit and risk assessment, and Part 2.2 covers a range of advanced human factors topics including human error and decision making.

This authoritative treatment of health and safety risk management is essential reading for both students working towards degrees, diplomas and postgraduate or vocational qualifications, and experienced health and safety professionals, who will find it invaluable as a reference.

Reviews

'If you’re looking for a comprehensive guide to risk management, this is the one for you. This book has matured very well over its four editions. The writing style is clear and concise, the content comprehensive. It is also well referenced, filled with helpful figures, diagrams and tables and its interesting layout provides four books in one.

Boyle’s book would make an excellent study text for people engaged in any safety and health study programme and offers a reliable reference for everyone else.'
