Full text not available from this repository.


In many countries the regulation of health and safety at work underwent a new turn in the 1970s and 80s. This book brings together research that reviews the coverage and effectiveness of the consequent arrangements for worker representation on health and safety that exist in the EU generally, within this specifically in the UK, Spain, France and Sweden, and beyond this in Australia, Canada and the Baltic States. It examines the effectiveness of these arrangements in different countries and how they operate in different sectors and in organisational of different size. It also considers in some detail the conditions that support or constrain these arrangements in different countries, which are generally found wanting, and especially the impact upon them of major political and economic changes in recent years.
