Work-related stress and resulting sickness absence costs the UK economy about £3.7 billion every year (HSE research). In this jargon-free guide, Jeremy Stranks explains what stress is and what causes it, how people respond to stress and cope with it, how stress can be evaluated and managed and what employers’ legal responsibilities are. Written for managers, HR professionals and safety reps, the emphasis of this book is strongly on practical advice and solutions. The author provides simple tools to measure and assess stress and shows how to deal with a range of stress-creating workplace situations, such as bullying, harassment and violence at work. The book also details how to implement a stress management system that complies with the new HSE Management Standards to avoid civil claims and criminal sanctions by the enforcement agencies. End of chapter key points draw out the implications of the preceding text for the employer and an executive summary shows the main aspects that senior management have to be aware of. In addition, the book contains forms and templates to help with managing stress. These are also available for download on the companion website. Stress at Work will also be a valuable reference for students on the following courses as part of modules concerned with Human Factors: NEBOSH Certificate and Diploma courses, MSc courses in Occupational Health and Safety Management, IOSH Managing Safely, British Safety Council diploma and NVQ level 3 and 4 courses in Occupational Safety and Health. Jeremy Stranks has 40 years of experience in occupational safety and health enforcement, management, consultancy and training. He is a founding member of NEBOSH and has lectured on numerous training courses on all aspects of health and safety. His company Safety and Hygiene Consultants offers companies advice in drawing up Health and Safety policies, writing risk assessments and audit procedures.

This book offers a clear explanation of the principles and practiceof construction planning, programming and control during thepreparation and construction stages of a project. The book iswritten in the context of current procurement and contractualarrangements and JCT2005, NEC3 and ICE7 contracts are covered. Thestatutory framework within which construction projects must bemanaged is explained and the topic of construction hazard and riskis covered in detail. A variety of programming techniques areexplained and the development of safe construction sequences andmethods is particularly emphasised. The control of time, money andresources are considered in a risk management context and acomplete chapter is devoted to cash flow. The third edition has been extensively updated and extended toinclude new materials on: * Hazard identification * Risk assessment * Health and safety management * CDM 2007 * Construction sequences and method statements * Delay analysis * Waste management and Site Waste Management Plans The final three chapters are devoted to individual case studieswhich have been selected to illustrate the practical application ofthe principles explained in the book and to provide examples ofcurrent procedures adopted by major contractors. The content isdesigned to provide a clear and comprehensive text forundergraduates on construction management, surveying and civilengineering degree courses.

The issue of risk should be embedded into the mindset of every engineer and manager to improve safety and dependability. Companies can be held accountable through law when a gross failing in health and safety management has fatal consequences. Here risk management, the organisational structure required and the main factors needed for its successful execution are explored. What risks must be managed as a legal requirement? How is risk quantified? What methods can be used to reduce risk? Such questions are addressed, alongside case histories of disasters to illustrate failures in risk management. In an easy-to-read and accessible way, The risk management of safety and dependability presents the key factors involved in successful risk management, so that even non-experts in small and medium-sized organisations, as well as engineers and managers, can apply sound safety and dependability principles. Complies with the recommendations of the Engineering Technology Board Assesses ways of recognising hazards and procedures for reducing risk in the design of processes, plant and machinery Provides detailed accounts of three major disasters and describes the lessons to be learnt in relation to risk management

Of related interest … Telephone Survey Methodology Edited by Robert M. Groves, Paul P. Biemer, Lars E. Lyberg, James T. Massey, William L. Nicholls II and Joseph Waksberg Here is a fascinating and comprehensive review of recent developments in telephone survey techniques around the world. Inside, you’ll find reports on trends in coverage of U.S. household populations, effects due to mode of data collection, and the state of the art in technology. Important aspects of each method are covered: choice of target population, sample design, questionnaire construction, interviewing techniques, measurement error issues, and nonresponse characteristics. 1988 (0 471-62218-4) 608 pp. Survey Errors and Survey Costs Robert M. Groves This groundbreaking volume provides a much needed synthesis of statistical and social science perspectives concerning design features in surveys. Drawing upon both of these disciplines for insights into the measurement of errors and the reasons why they exist, the book explores evidence of relationships among the several types of survey errors and presents cost models for reducing various errors. Also covered in depth is the impact of attempts to reduce survey errors on research budgets. 1989 (0 471-61171-9) 608 pp. Measurement Error Models Wayne A. Fuller "Four chapters, each dense with examples and exercises. Pages of crisp design. Extensive bibliography." —Sci Tech Book News "No longer will the excuse that the correct techniques are hard to find in the literature be valid … all the relevant material has now been collected together in this book. Many different models are considered, and estimators, distributional results, and asymptotic theory are set out for each model. Much recent research material is included. Application of results to real data illustrates each case considered." —Short Book Reviews (Publication of the International Statistical Institute) 1987 (0 471-86187-1) 464 pp.

Selecting Research Methods provides advice from prominent social scientists concerning the most crucial steps for planning and undertaking meaningful research: selecting the methods to be used. Contributors to the collection address methodological choices in four stages: design, sampling, coding and measurement, and analysis. The volumes provide an integrated approach to methodological choice in two ways. First, the contributions range from the early decisions about design options through the concluding choices about analyzing, interpreting, and presenting results. Second, the collection is integrated because it addresses the needs of projects that collect qualitative evidence, quantitative data, or both. Volume 1 concerns design choice; the articles focus on selecting designs that are effective for answering research questions and achieving the goals of the researcher. Volume 2 is on sampling and includes, in addition to sampling from populations, advice on choosing methods for recruiting informants for interviews, selecting sites for participant observation, and assigning subjects to control and experimental groups. Volume 3 reviews options for coding and measurement; it emphasizes methodological choices that enable researchers to study concepts in ways that enhance the reliability and validity of the research. Finally, the articles included in Volume 4 review the range of choices available among methods to analyze results and interpret the meanings of evidence
