WHS : A Management Guide : 3rd Edition - Richard Archer

Sorry, the book that you are looking for is not available right now.

We did a search for other books with a similar title, and found some results for you that may be helpful.

Now in its 3rd edition, WH&S, A Management Guide is a practical and contemporary introduction to work health and safety management.

Renamed to reflect the new health and safety paradigm introduced by Work Health and Safety legislation, the text is fully updated to address the latest changes in WHS law and policy.

The text contends that work should satisfy human needs as much as organisational goals.

Going beyond the risk-management model of physical safety, the text takes in to account the larger perspective of human health needs, including psychological and social needs.
