As the introduction suggests, it is an arduous task to attempt to explain the why and wherefore of OSH. But, being able to explain or justify why the many specific factors of safety and health are needed in order to build an effective OSH program that will protect businesses' or industries' capital investment, facilities, workforce, and profitability in the global world of today is a continuous and evolving undertaking for any reputable business. Since the questions of why this or that is needed for a safety and health program are always arising, this book provides direction and guidance for this endeavor.
