There are numerous books on International Environmental Management, International Marketing, and Global Business Management. There are also books on Occupational Safety and Health Management. But there are no books on global or international health and safety topics. This represents a vacuum of knowledge in this important area. With the growing need for occupational health and safety professionals in general, and the expansion of organization operations globally in particular, detailed information on international issues is essential. This handbook will provide much needed guidance to health and safety professionals just beginning projects abroad.
