The Essential Guide series of publications provides ready access to information on a range of health, well-being, safety and environmental issues and is an excellent source of reference for those managing risks. They provide an insight into occupational risks and techniques to prevent or control them. The practical and informative approach is useful for managers, specialist practitioners and students. The essential guides are a valuable first reference when managing risk.
Typical features of Essential Guides are:
- Text is written at an appropriate level to explain the topic, terms are defined in an understandable way and supported with examples.
- They contain practical explanations of risks, concepts and techniques that are supported by diagrams and images of actual workplace examples.
- To aid understanding of the importance of risks or the need to take appropriate action summaries of legislative or best practice standards are included where relevant.
- In addition to providing information on topics they provide details of appropriate related reference sources.
