Everyone can learn to recognize the ways work can harm our health and to identify the changes necessary to make work safer, healthier, and fairer. And because it is necessary to involve others in making these changes, it is important to learn to help others learn.

This book gives you tools to do that and to become a worker health promoter. It will enable you to:

  • identify health and safety problems in your factory.
  • understand the causes of worker health problems in your factory.
  • think about and implement short-term solutions to work problems.
  • plan and organize to achieve long-term solutions to work problems.
