Abstract

The book 'OSH for Development', edited by Kaj Elgstrand and Nils F. Petersson, Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm. 2009; 798 pages is reviewed and found to be a most useful work for students, osh professionals, and economic development specialists alike. Collectively, the work reminds us that implementation of OHS systems can, when involving the wider community, bring considerable safety and civil society benefits. That such potential might be realized highlights the important role OHS might play in the just transition to sustainable development.
