Keep pace with international debate

The second issue of a high level international forum for the analysis and
debate of a wide range of OH and safety issues is now available in both hard
copy and online.

Policy and Practice in Health and Safety (PPHS) is a biannual journal from
IOSH, aimed at those who practice, tutor, research or study health and safety
regulation and management.

The journal is edited by Professor David Walters of Cardiff University, and
has an editorial board that reflects worldwide academic and scientific
authority on health and safety and the working environment. PPHS addresses
practical workplace health and safety issues as well as the social, economic
