520    Despite gradual improvements in safety technology over the
       course of the last century, work related fatalities, 
       injuries and ill-health still represent a major and 
       unacceptable burden on both society and the economy in 
       most countries. The failure of employers to properly 
       discharge their legal duties to prevent this harm to their
       employees, provides strong ethical and pragmatic reasons 
       why people at work should have rights to adequate 
       representation of their health and safety interests. This 
       book considers the practice of such worker representation 
       on health and safety at work. Drawing on ten case studies 
       from the UK construction and chemicals industries, it 
       critically analyzes existing statistical data, brings 
       together a wide range of international materials, and 
       examines the extent to which existing arrangements deliver
       results. It finds that whereas worker representation can 
       improve health and safety, the preconditions for this are 
       only present in a minority of workplaces. Proposals are 
       made to redress the weaknesses of the currently dominant 
       regulatory model
