Abstract:

This book provides one of the first systematic accounts of how corporations manage risk to workers and consumers. Careful analysis and interviewing in different corporations elicit a portrait of the myriad hazards that currently confront industry, the corporate programs and resources that have emerged since 1970 to respond to this challenge, and factors that have contributed to successes and failures. In-depth studies of the Volvo Car Corporation, Rocky Flats nuclear weapons plant, Union Carbide's Bhopal facility, and large chemical and pharmaceutical corporations provide a state-of-the-art assessment of the advances and problems inherent today in industrial safety management. Roger E. Kasperson, Jeanne X. Kasperson, and Christoph Hohenemser are senior researchers at Clark University's Center for Technology, Environment, and Development (CENTED). Roger E. Kasperson is Director of CENTED and its Hazard Assessment Group. Jeanne X. Kasperson is Research Librarian at CENTED and Senior Research Associate in Brown University's World Hunger Program. Hohenemser, a professor of physics, directs the Environment, Technology, and Society Program at Clark University. Robert W. Kates, formerly with CENTED, is Director of the Alan Shawn Feinstein World Hunger Program at Brown University. Ola Svenson, of the Department of Psychology at Lund University in Sweden, is a leading researcher in the field of risk perception and decision analysis.
