The following books and materials are reference works we have found useful. There are many reference works available, and we mention these particular ones as outstanding value for the succinct way the safety material is presented.
There are valuable data available from the various government bookstores and industry and union bodies, and good quality information is often provided by suppliers hopeful of your business - at no charge. Cast your net widely in the desire for health, safety and welfare knowledge, and do not be hindered by political colour. We are after information that may save lives and must learn to withhold judgement until we have checked all the evidence. Even then, it is well to remember we are only as safe as the last hazard identified. What the future holds: anyone's guess!
However, take heart! In typing this bibliography into the computer, I could not help but notice how 'old' some of this stuff is, but good general health and safety principles do stand the test of time... For example, click here...
