This book considers worker representation on health and safety at work. Drawing on ten case studies from the UK construction and chemicals industries and bringing together a wide range of international materials, it examines the extent to which existing arrangements deliver results. It finds that whereas worker representation can improve health and safety, the preconditions for this are only present in a minority of workplaces. The authors also discuss the various ways of addressing the weaknesses in the dominant regulatory model.
