Occupational Safety and Hygiene V contains selected contributions from the International Symposium on Occupational Safety and Hygiene (SHO 2017, 10-11 April 2017, Guimarães, Portugal). The contributions focus on a wide range of topics, including:
- occupational safety
- risk assessment
- safety management
- management systems
- environmental ergonomics
- physical environments
- construction safety, and
- human factors
Occupational Safety and Hygiene V is mainly based on research carried out at universities and other research institutions, but also includes practical studies developed by OHS Practitioners within companies. Accordingly, this book will be a helpful text to get acquainted with the state-of-the-art in research in these domains, as well as with some practical tools and approaches that are currently used by OHS professionals worldwide.
