Reviews

"The subject of this excellent book - workers representation in workplace health and safety - is relevant to both policy and practice...This exemplary book reaffirms that OHS has to be understood in the context of the social relations of production and strengthens the evidence of the preventative role of workers representation (and not only 'participation') in occupational safety and health at a time when the 'safety is good for business' discourse is dominant, but promotes more underreporting than prevention measures." - Genevieve Baril-Gingras, Universite Laval
