Format: Paperback
Although the description for this book suggests it would be useful for a wide range of people, it is going to be of more use to health and safety professionals rather than lay people with health and safety responsibilities.

The book consists primarily of bullet points summarising the legislation with little or no further explanation. This may be just what health and safety professionals need, but I suspect most normal managers would need a bit more hand-holding and would find Health & Safety at Work - An essential guide for managers (also by Stranks) more appropriate.

There are some good form templates and check-lists, but again without any explanation they are going to be more useful to health and safety professionals.

I've rated this as only two as this would not be very appropriate to managers (despite the description), but I'm sure to a dedicated health and safety professional this would rate higher.

I do work as a H & S adviser, so whilst I know where to look for much of this information, it is absolutely fantastic to have it in one place. The book is divided into handy sections (including an A-Z index at the back) and acts as a brief description of what is otherwise some very wordy (and lengthy) legislation.

The only drawback I see at present is because legislation changes all the time, and the book dates from 2006, you will need to review and update the contents fairly regularly (for instance, the CDM Regs listed here are referenced as 1994, whereas they have been updated since then to reflect some fairly substantial changes).

All in all though, an excellent book to have close to hand.
