It is the right of every person to work in a safe environment, however globally every year more than two million people lose their lives due to work-related injury and disease. This figure does not take into account the millions of people who are also injured while at work. Contemporary management of work health and safety in Australia fosters a risk management approach. The aim of a risk management approach is to determine workplace risk and to eliminate or control the risk to protect workers, the environment and the financial stability of the organisation. "OHS Management: Contemporary Issues in Australia" is a practical guide for the safety professional to manage work health and safety in Australian organisations. It introduces the issues safety professionals are faced with when working in organisations in their efforts to improve the safety culture, and presents this discussion in light of this changing landscape to provide a guide for the safety professional that is backed up by research. This book is divided into four parts: Part I - Work Health and Safety Legislation, Part II - Managing Work Health and Safety, Part III - Research Evidence, and Part IV - Contemporary Issues. Appendices are then included that provide links to resources that can be used by safety professionals to assist them in their role.
