'...this book is concise and well argued and if used in workplaces with the potential for major incidents applying it assiduously would, I'm sure, reduce that potential. It is rare indeed to find a work on safety management that is easy to read and which also adds to our core understanding of a topic. This is one such volume.
I would recommend this book to anybody pursuing the NEBOSH Diploma, or any safety professional whose work involves the design and implementation of complex safety management system processes and the mitigation of serious risks.'
