Review:

"This practical guide continues to provide advice on how to establish procedures in your organisation. Written in jargon-free language, it cuts through the legal complexities to enable you to fully understand the law and its implications in your business." The Business magazine, October 2010 "While going into great detail on all the subject matter covered would take a work many times the size of this book, it does succeed in condensing and summarising the key points. It also does so in a reader-friendly way, eschewing jargon and getting to the heart of the matter in a clear yet authoritative manner.The author, Jeremy Stranks, has several health and safety publications under his belt and is well established in the health and safety community. Stranks adopts a style that ensures the non-specialist reader is able to access relevant information easily and make sense of what might otherwise, in less skilful hands, be overly complex matters...In the current financial climate, price is also important and this book should prove an extremely cost effective tool. Highly recommended." Health & Safety at Work, January 2011
