This book challenges the standard approach to occupational health and safety. It proposes a reconsideration of safety risks in an integrated matrix which includes security and environmental risks. This approach recognises the common grounding in risk management that underlies the methodology of practice in Safety, Security, Health and Environment areas and the similarity in legislative treatment by all jurisdictions in Australia. It then outlines the general duties, personal liability and explores a framework for safety security health and environmental management. Each chapter contains extensive references to relevant legislation, with case summaries extracted to illustrate principles along with discussion of relevant literature and expert commentary. The contents include: Occupational safety law comprehensive and national in approach Occupational security law discusses the emerging discipline of security law, including major hazard facilities and security plans, ports, airports and security requirements, emergency preparedness Security and anti-terrorism laws as they apply to business Occupational health law includes material on asbestos law, synthetic fibres, nanoparticles, noise management, stress, depression and mental health Environmental and sustainability law takes account of environmental law affecting the workplace, nationally including pollution law and environmental sustainability Safety, Security, Health and Environment Risk Management, Management systems and Performance measurement.
