Supervising Safety is about the implementation of safety measures in an organisation. The book looks at safety theory where it makes the most difference – as it is applied in the workplace. Safety officers are central to the practical application of safety, and their role is clearly spelt out. The goals of the safety supervisor are outlined and one chapter is devoted to the role of ergonomics in the workplace. Readers are also shown how to identify and evaluate hazards in the workplace, develop an employee safety programme and safely handle materials in storage.
