Part of The Nelson Series in "Human Resources Management", "Management of Occupational Health and Safety 5th Edition", is the best-selling text for the Health and Safety course in the Human Resources program. This fifth edition comprises three relatively distinct areas relevant to health and safety. The first set of chapters set the stage by providing an overview of health and safety. The next set of chapters focuses on the types of hazards in the workplace and the last chapters in the book speak more directly to human resource managers and outline some of the major ways in which they become actively involved in health and safety. Throughout the text we have provided the reader with current examples, clear definitions of technical terms, and links to the vast amount of information found on the Web. "Management of Occupational Health and Safety", as part of The Nelson Series in "Human Resources Management" is the best source in Canada for consistent, reliable, valid, and current knowledge about HRM practices.
