Policy and Practice in Health and Safety


About the journal


Policy and Practice in Health and Safety is an international journal published twice a year. It's designed as a forum for academic and policy discourse on health and safety and is aimed at those who practice, tutor, research or study health and safety regulation and management. All published papers have undergone a double-blind refereeing process by at least two referees.


Policy and Practice is an important source of reference for anyone studying or working at a professional level in health and safety. Professor David Walters (Director of Cardiff Work Environment Research Centre) is the editor and leads an authoritative international editorial board. The journal addresses practical workplace health and safety issues as well as focusing on a broader context - the social, economic and political discussions that shape employment and work.


Subjects covered in recent issues include comparisons of different regulatory and management framework, case studies of occupational safety and health in individual locations, and the impact of economic and political factors on health and safety.
