Making Safety Work: Getting Management Commitment to Occupational Health and Safety, Andrew Hopkins
7 Andrew Hopkins Making Safety Work: Getting Management Commitment to Occupational Health and Safety
Australia Allen & Unwin 1995 186373869X / 9781863738699 1st Edition Soft Cover Good 12mo 
208 indexed pages. Managers are often reluctant to commit to occupational health and safety despite proven benefits to employees and the organisation. In Making Safety Work, Andrew Hopkins looks at the reasons behind the reluctance and argues that the current policy of emphasising 'safety pays' is not effective. Rather, it is the threat of personal prosecution that most impresses employers. Based on interviews with Australian managers and occupational health and safety officers, Making Safety Work includes extensive case material from a wide variety of organisations. Hopkins also outlines strategies which OHS officers and representatives can use to gain management cooperation and build a safety culture within their organisation. Making Safety Work is essential reading for occupational health and safety practitioners, as well as students of management, organisational behaviour, business regulation and social policy.

Australia Australian Academy of Science 1981 0858470950 / 9780858470958 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
xvi + 143 pages. Research into lead and the Australian health environment brought some unexpected answers: Some evidence suggested lead is added in some way to food and beverages during processing, some children ingest lead from dust or dirt, from lead paint on old houses, lead toys or dust on clothes of family members who work in the lead industry - Australia IS one ‘of the world's largest producers of lead. There is, however, no clear-cut level of lead concentration in blood above which adverse effects are observed. While the researchers said their findings on humans did not give rise to grave concern, their conclusion was that certain limited populations are at risk and require identification. Lead from motor exhausts does not produce signs and symptoms of clinical lead poisoning. But, reports from overseas and Australia suggest adverse effects from this may be less obvious, especially on the mental and behavioural developments of children.

What's up Mate?, Bales, Helen

Australia Hodder & Stoughton 1987 0340372036 / 9780340372036 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
32 pages including colour illustrations. During the eighteen months my son Anthony was under treatment for cancer, we all - doctors, nurses and family - developed the habit of greeting him with "What's up, mate?". We didn't expect a reply but more often than not we did get a smile. Perhaps in the beginning, the question was too difficult for a six-year-old child to answer. During the long period of struggling to communicate and cope, Anthony himself became aware of our problem. When I decided to try to put it all down on paper, the idea was instantly endorsed "The kids need it, Mum," said Anthony. So do parents, friends, relatives and teachers. I hope that "What's Up Mate?" will make it just a little easier to cope in a very difficult situation.

As the coastal vegetation of the Jervis Bay region is quite different from that of the inland part of the Territory and would add greatly to the complexity of this guide, it has not been included; and as an additional aid to a compact guide, the descriptions have been kept as short as possible. References to further reading are included for those wanting more information.

Instead of studying for school grades as a teenager, I found myself studying for survival, using books written by exceptional athletes, doctors who accepted the principals of both eastern and western medicine and that unbelievable minority of people who have healed themselves of disease such as cancer. The anguish that my personal crisis caused, changed my whole outlook on life, and exposed principles of the connection between mind and body that allowed me to understand some of our mysteries of life. My learning process not only led me to success over illness, but also exposed secrets that led to super ?tness and strength, enabling me to enjoy national success as an athlete (the author).

Happy and carefree, she had a promising sporting career and was selected into an elite national basketball program. At the age of just fifteen, the future looked bright. But then the fairytale ended. Unable to cope with a series of life-changing events, Elizabeth slipped into a state of depression and spent the next five years living a tumultuous life she no longer recognised. Admitted to a psychiatric hospital, drugged and suffering a devastating case of anorexia nervosa, she was within just days of death. 'With wings, you can fly', a wise woman had told Elizabeth during her struggles. Realising that answers can only be found within, Elizabeth embarked on a journey of self-discovery, to uncover 'Eli' - the person she'd always dreamed she could be. With the support of friends and family, especially her mother, Maree, she managed to fight her way back from the brink to ultimately achieve health, happiness and, above all, her freedom. Elizabeth Best was born in central Victoria, 1977. She is the author of 31 books, including the bestselling, Eli's Wings and the non-fiction travel title, The Year We Seized the Day, co-authored with Colin Bowles.
