Policy and Practice in Health and Safety

IOSH's journal, Policy and Practice in Health and Safety (PPHS), is interested in dedicating a special issue of the journal to papers presented at WOS 2017. Papers can focus on any aspect of safety at work (examples are available at www.wos2017.net/theme-and-main-topics/ and the journal home page: www.tandfonline.com/action/journalInformation?show=aimsScope&journalCode=tphs20). We are especially interested in papers which focus on Risk Management and Safety Culture. Authors are encouraged to contact the Editor-in-Chief of PPHS, Dr Patrick Waterson (p.waterson@lboro.ac.uk), for further information. We anticipate publishing papers based in November 2018.
