The Business Case for Engineering in Health and Safety

This paper highlights the essential and growing role of engineering in supporting health and safety risk management and economic sustainability, listing some key steps for engineers, managers and government to consider. The business case for health and safety engineering solutions is outlined, providing real-life examples of many engineering-related successes and failures. This is supported by an explanation of how and why the case needs to be made more strongly. View paper >>
