LRD Booklets

The UK’s 15 million working women now make up around half the workforce. But the risks they face at work are often described as hidden or invisible and, for a number of reasons examined in the booklet, "women’s work" is sometimes perceived as safer than traditionally male-dominated occupations. Where these differences are acknowledged when assessing risks and deciding suitable solutions, there is a greater chance of ensuring that the health, safety and welfare of all workers is protected. Women's health and safety at work sets out the hidden hazards of women’s work and explains why taking a gender-sensitive approach to occupational safety and health is important.

The popular LRD Booklets provide invaluable information on a range of trade union and labour movement concerns. An average of 10 or 11 booklets are produced each year. There are guides to issues that are permanently on the trade union agenda - such as health and safety, state benefits and sick pay - as well as rapid analysis of new developments affecting trade unionists - such as new employment laws and codes.
