Summary Drawing from experience internationally, on recent and important developments in regulatory theory, and upon models and approaches constructed during the authors' empirical research, this book addresses the question: how can law influence the internal self-regulation of organizations in order to make them more responsive to occupational health and safety concerns? It argues for a two-track system of regulation under which enterprises are offered a choice between a continuation of traditional forms of regulation on the one hand, and the adoption of a safety management system-based approach on the other
