Just how dangerous is the everyday workplace? What can be done to mitigate risks and avoid hazards? And what trade-offs have to be made between the competing demands of safety, efficiency and wider social responsibility? This album looks at three very different case studies - farming, food manufacturing and urban redevelopment - and explores the varying approaches to risk management within each different sphere. It includes a visit to Fox's Biscuits and Brooksby Agricultural College in the UK and the city of Pittsburgh in the USA, and includes interviews with participants, academics and professional experts. The material forms part of The Open University course T835, Integrated health, safety and environmental management.
