Description

In 1977, a grain elevator explosion in Westwego, Louisiana, took the lives ofthirty-five workers. The next year, fifty-one men who were working on cooling tower for a WestViginia power plant died when their support scaffolding collapsed. And more recently, a Senatesubcommittee hearing revealed that the incidence of lung cancer among uranium miners is nearly fourtimes the national average rate for men of the same age. Clearly, as Lawrence Bacow writes in thisbook, occupational safety and health is a big problem that may be getting bigger.What can be doneabout it? This book argues that OSHA is not up to the task. Most accidents are caused by hazardsthat are unique to individual firms. A single regulatory authority like OSHA cannot be everywhere atonce; it lacks the resources needed to ferret out firm-specific hazards and to ensure day-to-daycompliance with health and safety regulations. If government is to make the workplace safe, it mustenlist the help of the parties that have the greatest influence over safety and health on thejob--labor and management.Bargaining for Job Safety and Health examines how labor and managementwork together and against each other to abate occupational hazards. It describes OSHA's influence,both positive and negative, over collective bargaining on health and safety issues. Through a seriesof case studies in develops a theory to explain why some unions are more aggressive than others inpursuing health and safety objectives. The book also outlines strategies that OSHA might take toencourage labor and management to assume a larger role in curbing job hazards through collectivebargaining.Although it focuses on job safety and health, this book draws a number of veryinteresting parallels between OSHA and other types of regulatory programs. It should interest a wideaudience, including labor and management officials, health and safety professionals, policymakers,labor relations scholars, and others interested in regulatory reform and program design.
