From Accidents to Zero: A Practical Guide to Improving Your Workplace Safety Culture

From Accidents to Zero: A Practical Guide to Improving Your Workplace Safety Culture by Andrew Sharman

As leaders increasingly understand the importance of good safety practice to support their business objectives, safety and health practitioners develop better tools and solutions. However, there is still a gulf between these two groups where engagement, communication and shared understanding can be found lacking. From Accidents to Zero opens up the field of safety culture and breaks it down into bite-sized pieces to facilitate new, critical thought and inspire practical action.

Based on the concept of creating safety, as opposed to just preventing accidents, each of the 26 chapters in this user-friendly...

The Changing World of Work: What Should We Ask of Higher Education?

The Changing World of Work: What Should We Ask of Higher Education? by Scott London

The Changing World of Work: What Should We Ask of Higher Education?

There is a pervasive anxiety in America about the future of higher education. Spiraling costs combined with seismic changes in the American workplace raise questions about whether a bachelor's degree is still worth the cost. In a recent cover story, Newsweek magazine asked: "Is College a Lousy Investment?" For a growing number of Americans, the answer appears to be yes.

Today's students accumulate an average of almost $30,000 in debt by the time they graduate. They will go into a job market that looks especially bleak for young...

Unified We Are a Force: How Faith and Labor Can Overcome America's Inequalities

Unified We Are a Force: How Faith and Labor Can Overcome America's Inequalities by Joerg Rieger & Rosemarie Henkel-Rieger

The American dream of "pulling yourself up by your bootstraps" is no longer possible, if it ever was. Most of us live paycheck-to-paycheck, and inequality has become one of the greatest problems facing our country. Working people and people of faith have the power to change this-but only when we get unified!

In this practical and theological handbook for justice, renowned theologian Joerg Rieger and his wife, community and labor activist Rosemarie Henkel-Rieger, help the working majority (the 99% of us) understand what is happening and how we can make a difference. Discover how our faith is deeply...

Criminal Capital: Violence, Corruption and Class in Industrial India

Criminal Capital: Violence, Corruption and Class in Industrial India by Andrew Sanchez

Criminal Capital explores the relationship between neoliberalism, criminality and the reshaping of class in modern India. It discusses how the political vocabularies of urban industrial workers reflect the processes by which power is distributed across the region. Based upon field research among a 'casualised' workforce in the industrial city of Jamshedpur, the book examines the links between the decline of employment security, and criminality in trade unions, corporations and the state.

The volume compares popular discourses of corruption against the ethnography of local labour politics, business...

Cotton Cultivation and Child Labor in Post-Soviet Uzbekistan

This book discusses the use of child labor in cotton cultivation in Uzbekistan following the fall of the Soviet Union, drawing on extensive field investigations and in-depth interviews with human rights activists, government officials, and social workers.

Unions, Change and Crisis: French and Italian Union Strategy and the Political Economy, 1945-1980 by Peter Lange & George Ross & Maurizio Vannicelli

First published in 1982, Unions, Change and Crisis represents the first detailed, comparative, historical and theoretically grounded study of two of the major trade union movements of Europe. It brings together the results of the first part of the first major study from Harvard University's Centre for European Studies.

The book explores, first individually and then comparatively, the evolution of the French and Italian Union movements through the end of the 1970s. It will be of particular interest for students of trade unions, industrial relations and political economy in France and Italy, but...

The Politics of West German Trade Unions: Strategies of Class and Interest Representation in Growth and Crisis

The Politics of West German Trade Unions: Strategies of Class and Interest Representation in Growth and Crisis by Andrei Markovits

First published in 1986, this book assesses the politics of the West German trade unions in the context of their larger role as major actors in the polity. By focusing on the historical realities of the labour movement both before and after 1945, the study explains the extent to which organized labour solidified and challenged the dominant structures of politics and authority. It examines the metalworkers' union, the construction workers' union, the printers' union and the chemical workers' union and shows how the industrial reality of each organisation helped shape its political outlook and...

The Margins of Citizenship

The Margins of Citizenship by Philip Cook

Citizenship is a central concept in political philosophy, bridging theory and practice and marking out those who belong and who share a common civic status. The injustices suffered by immigrants, disabled people, the economically inactive and others have been extensively catalogued, but their disadvantages have generally been conceptualised in social and/or economic terms, less commonly in terms of their status as members of the polity and hardly ever together, as a group.

This volume seeks to investigate the partial citizenship which these groups share and in doing so to reflect upon civic marginalisation...

Reskilling America: Learning to Labor in the Twenty-First Century

From Katherine Newman, award-winning author of No Shame in My Game, and sociologist Hella Winston, a sharp and irrefutable call to reenergize this nation's long-neglected system of vocational training

After decades of off-shoring and downsizing that have left blue collar workers obsolete and stranded, the United States is now on the verge of an industrial renaissance. Companies like Apple, BMW, Bosch, and Volkswagen are all opening plants and committing millions of dollars to build products right here on American soil.

From South Texas to the Nation: The Exploitation of Mexican Labor in the Twentieth Century

From South Texas to the Nation: The Exploitation of Mexican Labor in the Twentieth Century by John WeberIn the early years of the twentieth century, newcomer farmers and migrant Mexicans forged a new world in South Texas. In just a decade, this vast region, previously considered too isolated and desolate for large-scale agriculture, became one of the United States' most lucrative farming regions and one of its worst places to work. By encouraging mass migration from Mexico, paying low wages, selectively enforcing immigration restrictions, toppling older political arrangements, and periodically immobilizing the workforce, growers created a system of labor controls unique in its levels of exploitation....

NorwoodThis is the first systematic study of strikebreaking, intimidation, and anti-unionism in the United States, subjects essential to a full understanding of labor's fortunes in the twentieth century. Paradoxically, the country that pioneered the expansion of civil liberties allowed corporations to assemble private armies to disrupt union organizing, spy on workers, and break strikes. Using a social-historical approach, Stephen Norwood focuses on the mercenaries the corporations enlisted in their anti-union efforts--particularly college students, African American men, the unemployed, and men associated...

Hazards of the Job: From Industrial Disease to Environmental Health Science

Hazards of the Job: From Industrial Disease to Environmental Health Science by Christopher C. SellersHazards of the Job explores the roots of modern environmentalism in the early-twentieth-century United States. It was in the workplace of this era, argues Christopher Sellers, that our contemporary understanding of environmental health dangers first took shape. At the crossroads where medicine and science met business, labor, and the state, industrial hygiene became a crucible for molding midcentury notions of corporate interest and professional disinterest as well as environmental concepts of the 'normal' and the 'natural.' The evolution of industrial hygiene illuminates how powerfully battles...

A sweeping critical history of how Mexican Americans and Mexican immigrants organized for their rights in the decades leading up to the seminal strikes led by Cesar Chavez, this important work also looks closely at how different groups of Mexicans-U.S. born, bracero, and undocumented-confronted and interacted with one another during this period.

Military capability is delivered operationally at a team and collective level, be it a unit as small as a squad or section, or as large as a maritime task group. Modern military forces are required to deal with a potentially wide range of missions frequently involving multiple alliance partners, within a geopolitical environment which can seem to change rapidly. Individual performance, while being important, is not the primary determinant of mission success - force integration, interoperability, adaptability and teamwork are key factors. Team and collective training which fully addresses these...

Organizational Accidents Revisited

Organizational Accidents Revisited by James Professor Reason

Managing the Risks of Organizational Accidents introduced the notion of an ‘organizational accident??. These are rare but often calamitous events that occur in complex technological systems operating in hazardous circumstances. They stand in sharp contrast to ‘individual accidents?? whose damaging consequences are limited to relatively few people or assets. Although they share some common causal factors, they mostly have quite different causal pathways. The frequency of individual accidents - usually lost-time injuries - does not predict the likelihood of an organizational accident. The...

And she does so across the board: from management buy-in, employee development and motivation, right through to effective metrics for security culture activities.

While the impact of strikes was not always immense, they are deeply rooted in Israel's past during the Ottoman Empire and Mandate Palestine. Workers persist in using them for material improvement and to gain power in both the private and public sectors, reproducing a vibrant social practice whose codes have withstood the test of time.

It is especially significant as a radical group operating both within and outside the political system and in direct conflict with conservative government policies in education and other areas of domestic and foreign policy.

Theory of Union Bargaining Goals

Theory of Union Bargaining Goals by Wallace N. Atherton

Wallace N. Atherton is concerned with a single but very important facet of the behavior of labor unions—the ways in which their bargaining objectives are determined. He begins by reviewing the existing literature and briefly sketches the conceptual structure of the union.

The analysis starts with a theory whose form and substance are close to existing theories, and then is altered by adding unfamiliar elements. An eclectic "economic" model is built with two provisional assumptions: complete internal homogeneity of preferences about bargaining objectives, and perfect knowledge and foresight of...

Safety Management Systems in Aviation by Carl D. Mr Halford & John J. Mr Goglia & Alan J. Professor Stolzer

Although aviation is among the safest modes of transportation in the world today, accidents still happen.

Diamonds in the Rough: Corporate Paternalism and African Professionalism on the Mines of Colonial Angola, 1917-1975 by Todd Cleveland

Market Expansion and Social Dumping in Europe

It defines social dumping as the practice, undertaken by self-interested market participants, of undermining or evading existing social regulations with the aim of gaining a competitive advantage. It also shows how the two major...
