Presentazione del volume

As from the last decade of XX century, occupational health and safety has become increasingly important in Italy, both to public opinion and companies. On a company level, the increased importance of the matter has stimulated a growing number of companies to develop a structured and proactive health and safety management system. In this regard, this book, which focuses on a high risky sector (environmental hygiene sector), aims to analyse the degree to which health and safety managerial tools are applied inside waste management companies.
More specifically, after an initial analysis of the literature, the book discusses environmental hygiene sector's characteristics, the level of maturity of the health and safety management system inside the companies, and finally the implementation of an accounting tool for the measurement of accidents costs in four companies. The book supports academic debate and practitioners, providing empirical evidences and managerial indications for promote safety inside the companies.
